    What kind of drain are you running? If its a standard Durso overflow in a drilled tank, then its not a problem. Power down, let it drain to the sump. (My 90 drains about 5 gallons into the sump on power down.) Pump the sump out. Swap it out, refill the sump and power up. It could get a little messy, but nothing serious. Keep a bucket and towels around just in case it wants to drip a little.
