I put a sump under the 30 std last week. It's pretty basic, 10gal tank from the Petco $1 sale, using floss, lava & gravel bed, with 3 concentric plastic containers, and 2 sponge filters. The siphon is straight thru, without standpipe or air-break.

This is the first incarnation, just using a siphon hose and bulb for a drain. There's a PVC U with strainer in the tank. The pump is an old 200 GPH powerhead feeding thru a garden hose. 150 watt heater in the sump.

I bought one new sponge filter, but had every other part laying around, and the lava, gravel, and one sponge were already well cycled.

Since then I have enlarged the pump to a new 265 gph, and the drain, which is now 3/4" PVC (throttled) with PVC weir.

Better pics to come.

Lol I was just thinking it looked like something you would enjoy!

Great looking set up! I wish I had the patience to complete a project like that.
