Thanks for the tip. I'll do some research but with the 90 elbows I have now I don't think I'll have the room for it.
You absolutely have the room to run a bean animal in the Fiji 1200gph overflow, I'm running it on my current setup.

Hopefully these help.
So you do have one open siphon. The way I have seen it done is 2 siphons, one higher than the other, low one is main drain (which usually has gate or ball valve on it) and second is higher but below emergency drain and contains a vacuum break (usually a hole drilled into top of fitting) creating a partial siphon.

That's exactly how it is.

I am wondering what is the internal dems. on the stand. just in case I cant get the sump with it and need to use a cheap petco tank.
I can get you exact dimensions this afternoon if needed but the stand is half inch plywood I think so that would make it 35x22 ish I believe.
I don't want to take over @ks2509 's thread any more, but due to the design of the internal weir this is highly unlikely.
Thanks for the pics I have an idea know of what I want to try. Just have to find the pieces I need.

Found what I was looking for at another homedepot on the other side of town. 2 90 degree street fittings and 2 regular 90s and boom.

Cabinet lighting has arrived. Electrician is coming tomorrow to run a new dedicated circuit. Hopefully finish the plumbing and glue everything this weekend and start the leak check.
