My sump still isn't done yet, but I can post some pictures of the sump body and bio tower... all home made with stuff from Wal Mart. You might just need that 29 for growing out fry.

I made a sump for my 55 from a tubberwear container, tubberwear drawers, pot scrubbies and filter floss. All came from Walmart and cost less than 30 dollars. Never was happy with the noise issue from my DIY overflow so when the pump motor quit working I have never bought a new one. May invest in an acrylic overflow and bring the sump back out of storage.
