    I got some black acrylic from GE Polymershapes in Burnside. They were vey helpful and I didn't have to buy a full 4X8 sheet.

    Well I found a couple good prices on acrylic here in halifax, so I think I might buy a sheet and build a sump and refugium. Does anyone know what you should cut it with...maybe a drimal tool or something along that line....then sand the edges. Also what king of silicon would you use for this?

    Get some Weldon 16 acrylic cement. It makes a "welded" bond. You may still need silicone to close any leaks but use the Weldon to put it together.
