    DIY Sump

    Has anyone built there own sump system using 1/2" acrylic?
    It seems easy enough to do and you can custom make whatever size dependent on what you can fit.
    I have a 30 Gal long under my 100 Gal and want one bigger but cant fit a standard 55 gal tank under it.

    I see you didnt use a top support bracket. Did you just use the dividers as the strength to hold it all together?
    Would you do it again? What would you change?
