Building a filter out of my sump

Ok, I have decided to set up my 280g as Freshwater for now Sorry Guys! I know... I wish I was doing a reef, but I have to master my 100g reef first.
Plus my freshwater fish have grown so huge they don't really have a lot of room to swim in there current tank, So they are getting a nice new home!

My question is I want to make a huge filter out of my 110g sump.

I have been looking a lot online and I havent yet come up with a really good Plan yet.. I think I am over thinking or something.

Any Ideas?

I think your over thinking it with all that a sump has to offer i dont understand why more freshys dont use them JMHO All it really is is a place to hide the filter, heater and other stuff clamp a small light on it and grow plants in there it will help with trates
Most people create their own problems by not following the basics and refusing to stock appropriate to their system. Gregcoyote 2013
