Being up Townsville there is not many/none tank builders. I've built a sump from scratch and resealed a few 6x2. The flat pack come up for a fair price, so why not? My 6x2 is over flowing with fronnies so it's ever get a bigger tank or move a few fish.

It's easier with 2 people. What sort of silicone do you have with it, how many tubes do you have? You need a thick piece of foam -10-12mm, and a FLAT area to build on, corner clamps,normal clamps, maybe f-clamps if ground is not level or glass is cut differently and you get bubbles comeing up the silicone ect, new razor blades, metho, clean rags, 8 lengths of wood cut to correct length to support braces, something you can cut to pop under the wood to make up any differences in wood- depends on who/where cuts it. If you get the wood cut at bunnings, for example measure each piece as some of the cuts can be shoddy.

:) have fun
