bring the tank to a professional, that way they can do all this weird math measurement stuff to make sure that it wont colapse the glass once filled with water.

Excellent thread! I'm in the same boat..just starting up a 65 gallon FOWLR tank and I've considered getting a sump. Basically, the way I see it is that a sump can always be added later; and the added work involved in setting it up right away could be used in other areas. I'm currently running a Magnum 350 canister filter...not sure how that would work with a sump tho. I intend on getting everything started then probably adding a sump later and possibly upgrading my equipment. I was going to get a narrow protein skimmer to hang on the back of the tank so later on I could just stick it in the sump. Also, I don't see any reason that you would HAVe to drill holes in the tank for a sump.
Well, I'm obviously not-informed on the subject. Do you HAVE to drill into the tank or can you just use a pump/hose assembly to take water out of the tank into the sump and return it?
