would it be feasible just to take, say a 20 gal long tank, plumb a inlet and outlet, put some ls and lr in the bottom and have myself a sump/fuge?
Absolutely, just add a few baffles for removing bubbles and keeping the sand out of your pump, maybe add a skimmer in ther...and your all set

thats great news seeing as how i have about three 20 gal tanks layin around. It sounds alot better than $200.+ for a wet dry filter. hey man i really appreciate your help. one last thing if i hook up that sump, buy a custom sea life pc w/moonlite, would i be able to keep some corals under that light?
as of now i have 4 green chromis
1 yellow tang
1 blue mandarin
1 sebae clown
1 reef lobster
and about 50 lbs of lr(just got more today!)

I assume the CSL would have 4 X 65W PCs? If so then yes there is a wide array of corals you could keep.

Bio Balls and other media cause competing bio filtration organisms to take root in a system... LR and LS do the job better than these competing bio media when stocked to the levels reefrunner suggests.

Bio media is sold with a lot of tanks because not everyone uses LR and of course, in a freshwater system you need some kind of bio media... but for a reef tank that media gets in the way...
