    Guess I should have asked before getting the 20g. Is this big enough of a sump in case overflow?

    It could be it all depends on how your overflow pipes are set up. I have a hole in my loc line and return pipe to stop syphin, all I have to worry about is what comes from overflow after that.

    The stand I ordered is 281/4 tall. The 20L is 12 inches high as oppose to the 29L which is 18 inches high. I get 6 extra inches to get equipment in and out easier, I hope.

    Thanks @trio91. I know how insane preparing for a move and new tank can be.

    Stand and baffles ordered. Went with a different baffle set, you get one extra. Should all be here around 8/9.

    They seem sturdy and are fairly thick. I assume aquarium silicone works to glue them in place.
