My DIY sump

First attempt at a sump
Made out of a 10 gallon tank
With acrylic dividers
First section has drain line going into a filter sock
Second section has a bit of live rock and my protein skimmer
Second divider has a bubble trap with carbon foam
And final section has my return pump
Any suggestions to improve it?

Looks like you have a decent setup. Very nice considering it's only a 10g sump. Only other thing you could add would maybe be some macro algae with a light. Optional, but not necessary. Looking good!
