what does everyone think- sump build

So I wanted to get some opinions as to how I built my sump. I know its not the best but I wanna see where I can improve it. Here are the pics. I have some sponges at the top input to reduce the noise, some filter floss, and filter padding. Below that is about 90 pot scrubbers for the benificial bacteria and going into the return chamber I have first filter floss then at the top I have to sponges, then I have slate for more benificial bacteria and also a little filter rated for 150 gph. Tomorrow I'm adding a hot magnum 250 for water polishing and added filter media for benificial bacteria. I have the little breeder net in there as well along with my heater and an airstone. The pump I have in there now is giving my whole tank 1000gph, so all in all I'm gonna have about 1400 gph of filtration, so what do yall think?
