Also would it be enough to keep up with a rio 2100 return?

Does this look ok for my inlet chamber? Of course my sock holder needs to be smaller. Also I have 3 bags or bio rings in my current fluidized bed filter that I'll be adding. Or should I eliminate the balls and rings all together? I figured since my second chamber will have macro algae, they wouldn't hurt.

Overflow looks like my Eshopps box. Maybe the sticker came off on yours. The first chamber looks good, but bioballs are nitrate factories. You can keep them, but they usually trap detritus and cause some problems. How big is your inlet chamber?

Well in that case I'll get rid of them. Just thought the more things I had to trap bb the better. Chamber is 12 wide by 16 deep. Water level will be about 14.5" high. I had to put a couple filter sponges under my skimmer to raise it up. Will that work?

You can build a little platform out of light diffusing material people in this hobby call "eggcrate". You can use zip ties to hold it together. You want the skimmer to be in about 10" of water.
Kinda like this one...

Home depot calls it egg crate too. It's the plastic squared covers for large fluorescent lights commonly found in commercial and school settings.

I see, where can I find that at? Also should I put a filter pad in between my bubble trap?
