Sump Builder

I found a guy in NJ that builds acrylic sumps. I'm gonna have him build me one at 30"x14"x14" with 4-5 baffles. He gave me a qoute of 130 using 3/8 acrylic. Gonna have it built this week or next, most likely next but thats a great price.

In my book "Custom King" is the sump bilder here! He has been building sumps since I've been on MR. If you want something done right, his price are reasonable.

Anything, is do-able! Here is my sump built by Jeff aka Custom King.
This is my 3rd sump built by Jeff. Sturdy, very efficent and the architect was design to work together. This sump is almost 40G, housing a Mini BK 180 skimmer. Refugium area for Cheato/Macro algae & live rock. 2 filter sock holders and probe holders. This sump is currently being used on my 125 Gallon.

When I first got the sump from Jeff! The frag tank was built by Jeff also!


Same sump w/ a Vertex 100 skimmer


same sump w/ a Mini BK 180 skimmer
