Cant hang mine on a sump we are using one of those big poly farm feed tubs. So its either sit on the floor next to the sump or sit in the sump.

Hang mine on the ouside and i ahve never had one leak. Great little reactor IME.

Just dont get the Kent, I had severala nd i hate that dumb lock top, its a terrible design.

I have heard the XP is very leak prone as well

I use a 100g stock tank for my sump as well. I just have my reactor sitting inside of the sump.
