I use a sump on my freshy tanks. A homemade wet/dry filter. Works much better and can be made for nearly nothing. Sump, 10 gal tank, overflow out of dollar store water pitcher and a bulkhead. In sump I use a 6 drawer sterlite plastic cabinet. In each drawer I can use a different filter media. Plans for diy overflows and sumps are all over net. They are more efficent, less expensive and you change only one filter media at a time so less crashes.
