    Hi guys

    I have a 500 cube and want to add a ats
    but space is limited in the sump area.
    could I use my corner overflow and just lower my
    durso standpipe and hang a waterproof light fixture
    in the overflow with say shade net as the grow area on all
    sides?

    the overflow is about 150 x 100 rectangle and about 450
    high.

    thanks

    while it can work, for an ATS we aim for width not height
    i will look for a link here where the ATS is in the overflow
