75G fish tank
85G sump with acrylic baffles and bubble trap

1. sump pump
2. LS LR <- i want to get some Oolitic sand and  LBTR

contact mike (fishoutawater) on here, he does awesome custom overflows, and drilling at a dang good price. If you haven't drilled glass before I wouldn't try it yourself on a 75 that could be an expensive mistake.
