I was curios on what dimension you would make your chambers in your AIO 40 breeder. This is a pic of my DIY AIO 40 breeder. I made the chambers 4 and half inches wide to fit a 4 inch sock filter.

I'm planning on upgrading my aio 40 gallon breeder and start up a new build thread. But does anyone have any suggestions on a rimless 4 to 5 feet long tank? By the way my 40 breeder has been up for 7 years.
If you're handy at all, building a rimless tank is pretty easy. Source your glass, only constrained by your imagination.

Do you have any links to how to build your tank?
Page 30 of my build thread starts me building my frag tank.

There are a few really good YouTube instructional videos as well that I watched.

Just in case if anyone was curious about the stand. Its just a petco stand where I cut some thin plywood and created my shelves. I keep my auto top off container inside. I also used magnets to hold the pieces of plywood, so I could chnage them out later to fit different styles or seasons. It's also a good child proof system. No handles.

So, I have decided I am going to start dosing my tank. These are the products I've decided to use at first. But I plan on trying out seachem next. Let me know what you think. Also, if all goes good I will probably get a dosing pump.
