Drawing up plans for a DIY sump. not a pretty picture but I think it gives a good idea on what I might go with. The refugium will b separate from the sump itself. looking for any advise on this since this is the first sump I will attempt to build.

at a first glance, looks like it would work. Id go with it
thank you. but plans for the sump size has changed. going smaller. 40 breeder the width is a half in to long. 55 is to tall I couldn't get anything in or out without taking the tank out. 75 is to long and to tall. so looking at a 29 or 30 gallon tank.
