    Hi, I have a nano tank 88x50x36. It has a cabinet underneath of which is 55x72x26. I was wondering if a bespoke sump to fit the unit is adequate size for this tank or should I make the unit bigger to fit an bigger sump. I am news to sumps as have a hang on skimmer at the moment. Any advice would be very appreciated.

    and possible that you could use it in your next upgrade

    Yeah I thought that might be the case. Do you know if there is any silicone I can use for my sump which are on the market or do I have to get stuff from fish shop
