    Default how to turn a 100g rubbermaid into a sump

    I just purchased a 100g rubbermaid i planned on using as a sump for my system, i was wondering if any of you could give me any feedback/pics on how this is done.
    It takes a long long time to build a coral reef. Step by step the reefs survive on partnerships. And the most important partners are you and I.

    I just put my drain line in mine. Then a return pump to feed back into the system. It was just a giant open section that worked great with my skimmer on some egg crate.

    nothing will adhere permanately to the material that the rubbermaid is constructed from. so any divider that you wish to install will need supports to hold them into place.

    food for thought
