    Any chance you could make one for my sump? I would need two holes from the drains.

    They are biological filtration drawers. The customer needed an area that they could put live rock in and be able to remove and replace it as needed. Those boxes actually sit in larger sumps. After the water drains through the socks it then flows through the biological drawers and out the bottom into the larger sump.

    Wonder if you could make a removable lid section for a rubbermaid sump too? Made so it had a lift off lid made of clear acrylic.

    I have to ask one more question, did you have it shipped or was there a local vedor? If it was shipped, do you mind me asking how bad it was? I am thinking of getting two of them and wondering if it's one of those situations were the shipping is as bad as the containers themselves.
