Miracle mud sump

Have been offered a miracle mud sump for a good price and to be honest I had never heard of it before has anyone had any experience with one? Are they any good?

Seen reviews on youtube and apparently they are very beneficial. Don't have it, and my mangroves and chaeto etc do fine.

I have had it with chaeto for over a year now. I cannot say it has helped or hurt. It's just there. My LFS told me it was essential and I don't know enough to disagree.

I love it on my 90 reef. Keeps the water clean and corals seemed to react to it. Going to add another 10lbs bag to make it a total of 20 lbs for my sump.

Out of interest would I still need a clean up crew with this sump?

Yes. I use it and you will definitely need a clean up crew for old food, fish wastes, algae, etc.
