Need help setting up 8ft and sump

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone, I’m after some help on setting up an 8ft with a sump. 

 

Ive got an 8ft but it hasn’t been drilled yet, so  im pretty much after advice to set it up from just a tank to a tank with holes, plumbing and also how to set up a sump. What size hole should I drill, how many should I drill, what plumbing bits should I use from the tank all the way to the sump. 

How should I divide the sump and what media should I use, what return pump and heater etc. 

 

i was thinking of going a 4ft sump, hopefully hat would be good enough for an 8ft tank that will have African cichlids in it (frontosa, dolphins, electric yellows, clown loach). 

Drawings with writing would help a lot more or even photos. Thanks for you help
