Hey all, I'm looking to get rid of my hokey sump (rubbermaid), wondering if anyone in town builds acrylic sumps.

I believe it will have to be custom due to access in my stand.

I have a 90g and would like to have a proper sump. I just purchased a new PS4 for my return and am thinking micro bubbles are going to be a issue in my current set up.

Thanks in advance

Industrial plastic and paints could probably do it for you.
But custom work is going to cost $$$

A place called plexi klas on John St can do it a lot cheaper than IPP

Agreed.
Small Mom/Pop type operation.
Very personable and friendly.

I called them today to see how much an acrylic tank with the measurements 24" by 18" by 36" (70G) and they wanted $400. Not as cheap as I expected.

thats realy not bad at all, a glass tank that size would be 350ish.

Marnie a cheaper option might be to buy a used tank (glass) and convert it to a sump thats why Brad, myself and others have done and it works great. you just have to know how big and what all you want in it.

Thanks all, I will have to look into these suggestions.

I do have a few old tanks laying around...I'm thinking maybe I can plumb 2 small ones together.

Any pics of your setups...keeping in mind I am still running a overflow and my tank is not drilled.
