Sump design

Ok so I'm building a sump tank out of a 20gl for my 125. Couple of questions.

1. How is it set up (water into the first chamber with a filter pad/sock? Then where to next?)
2. What are the pros and cons to doing a refuguium?

Send a message via MSN to mr_X
A 20 long is going to be quite limiting. What skimmer will you have in there?

Id go with at least a 55g as mentioned. On my 110 I had a 29g because the tank was only 4ft long. If you do a 55g then you will be happy and wont run a bigger flooding risk
