Wet-Dry or LR

I'm a newbee setting up a 75gal FO tank. I'm looking at the All-Glass pre drilled Megaflow aquarium. I was thinking of going with a wet-dry filter (Aquaclear or Bio Rocker) but the more I read this and other forums it sound like a sump w/LR is the way to go. Is there a good site or book w/diagrams on setting one up. I would probable use a 20 or 30 gallon aquarium.

Hi, Krummy! I'm about 2 days ahead of you in researching this, so I have no advice but I can point you to some sites that have helped me understand this whole sump business. They tend toward DIY as this seems to be one area in which it saves a lot of money to make one.

I'm sure more experienced folks will come along and offer some advice, but maybe these sites will keep you busy until then. :-)
