    Who sells the best sumps?

    For those of us who aren't into DIY, is there a manufacturer that has a very good product and won't bust your wallet! I've researched and found manufacturers of aquariums and sumps just don't have what I'm looking for. If theres some company out there that makes a unit with a sump that includes a refugium could You direct me to them. I'm looking for something pre-made, not made to order! Thank you for any help!

    CnC marine used to build awesome custom acrylic work but I don't think they are back up and running(ever since the fire).

    I saw your question (somewhere else), about getting someone to build you a sump and ship it to you. I think that would be rather exspensive postage but if you really get desperate and want to avoid diy I would be willing to build you one and ship it to you. I have built my own out of both acrylic and glass and the acrylic one has been holding water for well over 2 years.

    PM if you ever get to that point.

    PS. They really aren't that hard to build.

    Who built i2ik's sump? That acrylic sump/refugium is insane! I'd go with them if they didn't cost a fortune, which they probably did.
