    Default Broke My Sump - Sump Recommendations?

    Hey guys, I was working on getting my 230 back up and running and broke my sump trying to clean it. Cracked it where the bulkhead opening goes to the pump.

    So due to the constraints of the stand I am limited to a footprint of 34x12x18 and I need two inlets. Best option ATM seems to be a 29 gallon tank with filter kit to divide up the sump into sections.

    I have used a 29 standard size tank with egg crates as dividers.

    amazon had a nice DIY sump kit for a 29g that worked really well for me. I think I paid $25? not 100% sure now. But, you can always do it all on your own with egg crates or just foam pads. Is your current sump not repairable? can you remove the glass and replace it?
