    Hi all can any body help me with some ideas with a sump for my hex Tank it was my old fishonly tank an I used to use 2 canister filters . I want to build a sump for it as I think it would be more sufficient for it.

    Tank is 600mmx600mmx700mm if you make it a square
    L B H
    my cabinet is also hex and 500mm high

    DO i drill or do I cut the back pane ??

    how would i go about building the compartments for the sump 2 or 3 compartments??


    Any help would be appreciated .
