250 gallon triton sump

Not seeming to find anything here from anyone using triton method on a tank of this size. Anyone have any suggestions on a sump for a 250 using triton?

I'm wanting to get this system in and rolling and I'm trying to dial in as many aspects as I can before pulling the trigger on the tank.

The Triton method would require a sump with a fuge section of approx 25 to 50 gallons for a 250G tank..

Are you having the tank custom made? If so I would think the manufacturer could make the sump to match..

Sump decision will also depend on other variables/equipment choices that you have yet to state so a recommendation is a bit difficult.. Knowing a budget would be nice too..

My current choice is a CA 24x96x24. For some reason I'm not a fan of their sump design. I feel as though I'd be better served by acrylic being able to see inside the entire sump area rather than the translucent white plastic tubs. I'd like to be able to see what's going on in the fuge with bugs, etc. Be able to see the accumulation (if much) in the sump itself and just keep an eye on everything.

I'd prefer an internal skimmer rather than external, should be going the various-8 pumps for returns, dual.

Custom Aquariums..... that'd be the seamless sump. Just rather be able to see all sides of the fuge, probes, pump rather than sticking my head over the top to see whats what.

I figure an opaque black sheet to separate skimmer section to block light would be a true must have for the sump
