I am seeking a sump ready glass tank, preferably rimless, that is in the neighborhood of the following dimensions w24 d24 h16. I am a bit flexible. The tank must be in good to excellent shape.

Thanks in advance, Rick

thanks, I will drop by. Did you happen to notice if any of them are drilled for sump?

probably not.. those should be the standard mainland cube.. I dunno what burnaby store has, but, I do see a few of them in the Richmond store.

that's fantastic! I haven't set up a sump before. Could I lean on your knowledge a little if I go that route?

Really appreciate the offer of the saw.

Make sure you double check on those cubes from island pets, I believe they are at least partially tempered glass. I thought about one of those myself and I don't believe they can be drilled..

I was wondering about wether they were tempered or not. Thanks for the heads up!

the shallow cube at IPU north road is like 24 x 24 x 18 or 16 ... something like that. comes with a stand for i think 4 or 500? marineland tanks all have tempered bottoms i believe.

I was looking at that setup myself

I want to have a drilled tank so perhaps this wont be an option. Shoot.
