    Yea, I second that. I have yet to find a sump worth buying because it's overpriced and it's set to where I can't really use it.

    Depending on the skimmer it is too high or too low, and has more bells and whistles than I care about. Give me a sock holder, skimmer section with bubble trap, fuge section, and a return. And the ability to adjust the size of each section. All without charging me $300. Otherwise, it's a $30 tank, a tube of silicon, some tape, and some glass or acrylic sheets for me.

    i think if they made it with baffles that fit into slots with 3 choices right to left about an half inch in between the slots the baffles slide in and out of the slots and the baffles also be made of a certain material that u can score and make fit to size with extra baffles for bubbletrap option and come with silicone to put it together permanently . the slots take care of the hard work of holding it together trying to silicone the baffles in . my friend thats my dream sump

    Make one skinny enough to fit under the smaller stands.. Such as for a 55 being as there is only 11 inches of room.. just a thought

    Unless you have it backwards the last time I checked 5/16 is THICKER than 1/4. Son't know if you got it backwards or if you are just horrible with fractions as I usually am.
