no bio balls. that would probably be a wet/dry filter, which is different than a sump.
i would probably make a sump out of a standard glass tank, but the inside dimensions of your stand may limit you. worst case scenario, you can find someone who will build you a custom sump pretty cheap. i know a guy in northern Pa that is cheap. i wonder how the shipping would be for something like that.
meanwhile, what are the inside measurements?
