I've heard bad things with bioballs in saltwater. I think you should replace them with live rock rubble.

i belive the bio balls/rocks should in the water instead of the water run thru them like that in mid air.

The bioballs are going to get green and slimy if the 'fuge light is allowed to shine on them.

I just added water to my latest tank. I used a similar sump setup only having the inflow coming into a seperate chamber that held my heater and protein skimmer - then a baffle, my fuge, then a baffle into a live rock rubble area with my return pump. I also have the intake area with the protein skimmer having some rubble.

I have a wet/dry setup with my 125g and I am not pleased with its performance and I will be switching it over to a rubble/fuge setup shortly
