Need help getting started - Mostly plumbing

Hello all!
I have a 200G Bow front tank that i would like to set up. I have had it for a few years and have extra time on my hands now! So I need some direction with plumbing. Is there a good thread on here for that. I have looked up quite few online and some videos but ALOT of info can be overwhelming! Thanks for your help!
Rookie!

What are your plans? Are you setting up a sump under the tank, or maybe in your basement?

If you can post a few more details, I'm sure the proper advice/suggestions will be offered.

If you cannot wait more than 7 hours for an answer this may not be the hobby for you. This takes time only bad things happen fast in this hobby. I can more than help but need more info on what your plans are.

I can almost certainly offer some suggestions as well, but with no info about what you plan on, much less the patience to wait for a response, it is difficult to help.
