    Are you looking for a sump or a trickle filter

    I never liked the pre-built sumps. It's so easy to either buy a tank and baffle it exactly like you want it or buy the acrylic sheets and get some weld-on to seal it up. In my opinion they work better, are far cheaper, and are a lot more rewarding when done. They are pretty cheap to build too...

    I agree. I set up a 210 last winter and bought a megaflow 4 trickle filter and didnt really care for it. I took it down and built my own out of a 100 gallon stock tank. That was by far the best decision i ever made!

    I have a nice Eco Systems Refugium/sump. Watch the 4 part video on the miracle mud. If I could do it over this is what I would do.
