Dear Kevin Jones,

You might want to check Aquarien-Bau Schwarz systems.
I have worked both with Aquatic Habitats as well as Marine 
Biotech Systems and I can tell you that Aquarien-Bau 
Schwarz systems are simpler, more cost efective as well as 
cheaper to acquire and of easier maintenance.
Check their website: www.aquaschwarz.com
Ask them for a quote on a stand alone PVC unit.
Hope I could help,
Kind Regards,

Tiago Repolho
