HiSounds tricky, lifting and bending is a hazard of a Marine tank. What your talking about is a return pump pumps the water out of the sump and into the display, that then goes over weir, in the weir is one or 2 overflow pipes, 1 of these works on a full syphon basis, so if you put the sump higher say at waist height you might not get the necessary length in the pipe to get a syphon to a cure.

What about a tank with an inbuilt sump, like a Red Sea Max? (or I think allpond sell some cheap copies)
Here's someone else's diagram, but it gives you an idea of the sort of thing that's achievable
I'm no expert whatsoever! Used to keep marine (with varying degrees of success years ago) and have now started again (with a lot more success). But could he not go for a smaller tank, maybe a nano? Not so much need for a sump and a bit easier to manage with water changes etc! Seeing as he can't really lift stuff..
He could do, you can get some with filtration in the rear. If he had a 100l tank would a 10l water change a week be do able?Tim
Depends on the stock and his feeding habits I guess. If he had a skimmer I'm sure a 10% water change would be fine. I usually do 15-20% a week on mine but I'm pretty sure I'm being a bit obsessive!
