    If you want to try and clean that sump I would fill it with water and a gallon or so of white vinegar. Thats how I clean all my pumps rock and tanks. Just fill it and let a pump circulate water for 24 hrs or so and it should get all the old crud off the glass.
    I am interested to see how this turns out!

    Yeah, I think that 200 gallon # is based on a SG of about 1.024?
