Need sump-one to help


Is anyone able to help me out with a sump design? All help would be greatly appreciated.

I've been researching sump designs but all I've done is confuse myself even more.

I've seen debates regarding the need for live rock in the sump. The main tank will have the required amount of live rock for the size.

That's about it for now. If anyone is willing to help please let me know what units of measurements we'd be working in as I'm in UK and I bet you're not.

have a look in my profile,there's a few designs,
What are you using the sump for? just to hide equipment/extra water volume or for macro algae's?

Google "Melev's Reef". Everything you need to know is on his sump page.
