You have to have a tank that will hold the same amount as your old sump or more . More is always better. Find a tank that will fit under your cabinet . Get some plexiglass and start putting it to gether . I suggest algae turf scubber and a reactor for charcoal. And a filter.

sorry should've been more precise, I want to go with an already made sump also, it's my first reef tank so i want to keep things simple!
