The only reason it's going to the Jets system is because I'm already going to have a Fluval 406 on the tank

If you're going to be doing the same thing you have to match the gallons per hour in the piping system the trickle wet dry filter and the gallons per hour in the jet system.
You have to match everything or it will not work correctly. Let's pray that I get it right

Not sure what these charts mean can you give me the site? I would assume you just need enough pressure to get it to work properly?

PVC Overflow system question.

Sorry about that, I was driving when Posted that. Those are gallons per hour for the width of PVC pipe.
I try to match the gallons per hour for the pipe, with the sump pump and etc.

What is that black stuff you are using to hide the piping inside the tank?

Are you referring to the plate of glass or sheet of plastic that has a grate at the top that allows water to enter the drain pipes?
