Large Sump/Refugium Suggestions

Recommended Posts

Any suggestions for a holding tank 75g+ that doesn't include a glass/acrylic aquarium or Rubbermaid stock tank and won't bow?

Ideally, under 50" long and 30" wide.

I don't quite understand your question. Do you want a suggestion for a tank that holds water, but isn't made of glass, acrylic, Polypropylene or Polyethylene (stock tank and Rubbermaid brute)?

No glass/acrylic. Anything else, but not the common Rubbermaid holding tanks specifically, which have many stories of leaky bulkheads and bowing.

If you are looking for a tank-shaped option, how about an aquaponics tub:  https://www.amazon.com/Tuffstuff-KMR75-Rectangular-Aquaponics-75-Gallon/dp/B001C46V8S

Or a poly water trough?  http://gototanks.com/75-gallon-water-trough-w-75.html

 

If you do use a Rubbermaid or any other curved shaped surface, you are probably better off with a uniseal instead of a bulkhead fitting if your application accommodates it.
