    [​IMG] now I'm not sure if I should build the filtration in the back of the tank or build a small sump to put in this cabinet

    Very nice job with the tank. Any tips you can share on building with acrylic?

    Thank you, well you should cut with a diablo blade to get smooth cuts and just sand the edges really well so you can get good seams..just ask your local plastic shop for scraps to practice with. Sometimes they will give them to you for free or very cheap..it's really pretty easy after a little practice and the right tools
