    So today I grabbed a plexiglass tank, gussing ~40-50g in the three foot side, has been drilled on the right back bottom corner for overflow.

    Second tank is a four footer I'm guessing in the 60g volume, has corner overflow on the left and two holes drilled on the lower back for a closed loop?

    Both tanks have a black back.

    Either tank would make for nice sumps or if you need some spare acrylic, they can be donors.

    Pick up in San Francisco

    I've been looking for ~ 40/50g sump. Think it would be easy enough to fill in the overflow?

    @xcaret do you have the depth and height for the 60g?

    Sorry to ressurect such an old post, but did you ever find a good home for these? The 48" one would make an excellent sump for the 120 I'm using to get back into the hobby.

    Thanks Ashburn. I'm trying to take things a bit slower hand did before... Last time arround I didn't have a plan, so this time I'm trying to get everything dialed before I get anything wet.
