By the way, I'm very jealous of your tank just thought I would let you know

How's this look? Inside green basket that's upside down is full of pot scrubbies. And of course the white is poly fill...

Oh that didn't work out. I changed it and used a shallow rubbermaid container and got a giant filter pad that fit into the container. The pics are in the other post about my filter.

That pic is only half of the sump. The other half is empty.

I'd use a drip plate and standard "bioballs" just like in a SW wet/dry filter. Maybe some aquaclear or fluval foam as a prefilter. You can also throw some powerhead adaptable spong filters in the sump to filter out wee particulates - or just use it as a fry tank and make sure they don't get sucked into the return pump!

Nice tank - I wish All Glass still made the 8x2x2 240, but an 8x3 tank is awesome! Keep it freshwater and represent!
