OK that makes sense, thanks. If that way is OK for me to, or if Taz can elaborate a bit, ill change plans, but my mind could only start with the simple option.
How are you making your sump. Im reading all sorts of different things im creating my own confusion. Im going to be using a glass tank. So it seems like the best thing to do is use glass baffles, as its hard to bond acrylic to glass. There is also a concern with acrylic expanding and breaking the glass.
Does lowes or Home depot cut glass. What thickness will i need? and do the baffles in the sump need teeth?
