    I had a SW aquarium years ago and loved it and now just got a line on a 125 gal and a 50 gal tank and my intent is to keep the 50 gal in the basement as a sump. There are a ton of discussion out there, but I can't seem to find an example of one that someone already made and was happy with it.

    Do specific plan exist that I can just copy?

    Also, thought on a pump? I'm calculating size of about 2500 gph to account for a 10 ft height, and about 4 90 degree angles.

    Thanks in advance.
