My understanding is that this guy sends out precut acrylic panels. You will need to glue it together yourself.

From what I read and understand they will make you a filter -refugium or anything special for that matter. Either their standard sizes or custom sized to your dimensions. Sounds good to me IF and I repeat IF you are comfortable with assembly yourself. I made my sump and it was not that difficult. If you are all thumbs I would say forget it!

I'm not worried about the assembly. Just wasn't sure about the design. LL the exit flow is gonna suck in a ton of air and create bubbles in the tank.

Refugiums are supposed to have a SLOW flow thru them so I would not think that would be a problem.

Sorry if I wasn't clear... it looks like the out flow into the display will not be fully covered with water so it will end sucking in some air causing bubbles in the display.
