Tank 5x18x20 Cabinet with Sump

Recommended Posts

My build starts by scoring a free 5ft from mate of mine. For starters you should never take free tanks off mates, because by being free all it does is escalate the build.

This tank is designed to be a room dividing tank, I know its not over tall but i think its big enough to do the job. The bulkheads and plumbing are concealed in the cabinet.

Tank is 5ft long, 18 inches wide and 20 inches high, the sump is 4ft long 12 inches wide and 15 inches high. Sump tank was also free off Gumtree.

Designing the stand cabinet and hood.

Because the tank already had a patched bottom and it cost me nothing I chucked it in the bin. Bought some glass and have started a brand new sump from scratch.

Got the holes for the bulkheads drilled in the end of the tank last night. For once something i saw on youtube was actually as easy as they said. Then painted the end Black

Made up a jig at work for the correct location.
