    hello everyone,

    Im thinking about putting in a small internal sump into my little 30l coral tank (maybe two or three chambers) and i want to make it out of the same plastic used in built in nano filters. Does anyone know where i could find this stuff in durban/hillcrest area???

    Also if any one has pics or links of sumps that have been built into displays, that would be great, still looking as possible designs/ideas.

    Thanks in advance :thumbsup:

    Hi - have you considered using the aquaclear range of hang on filters - many mods on the net on how to setup as additional filtering or nano refugium
