    Hi all, I have a Boyu tl550 but now wanting to build a bigger tank. My frame or stand will be carrying a 350L tank. I have ordered the tank. I need advice on holes in the glas, sump, overflow, everything to build a successful marine tank. Let the fun begin!

    Hey man. Lol know the feeling im also upgrading. Your holes etc depends on what you want to use. Go to the search bar and search overflows. There is a great thread with a lot of info about the different overflows you can use. Then a sump is 3 chambers. 1 will be inlet from the DT with your skimmer. 2 will have an dsb or refugium whatever you want and 3 is your return pump with chemical filtration you might have like bio cubes, carbon etc. you can add a 4 chamber for your auto top up. You can also search sump there are a few threads with designs. Stand you can make out of 50mm square tubing.
