sumps might be the best. just because of all the stuff you can hide in them and its fully customizable. wet dry filters are good also. i would make a thread on it!

Sump/refugiums are the best filtration you can use imo for salt or fresh....if done right u could do a water change once a year and you'll have no bad parameters...if you'd like to look into it check out YouTube and search for wet pets its a shop near me that specialize in discus and saltwater which there main discus display tank has had 10 wc in the last 6 years!

It will keep it from gurgeling because the pipe will be more full. I flow 500gph through a 1" pipe

Oh alright. I took the sponge off the pipe because it was restricting some flow and now it is very quiet. Thanks!
