Eshopps: Reef Sumps it was 159.99 at the store

All Reef Sumps include followings:

do you have a website for those? I would be interested in seeing what they have to offer as well.

Send a message via MSN to mr_X
you are better off making your own out of a standard tank. you can do this for much cheaper, plus be able to customize it to your needs.

Looks like a nice layout to me, as long as it is big enough for you tank size. I have my sump setup the same way as you could setup that one.
Drain/Filter Sock - Protein Skimmer- Baffle full of live rock rubble -Return Pump
I recommend replacing the sponge with a bunch of live rock rubble.

As Doug said, building your own is much cheaper, but that looks like an ok design. Take a look at Melev's Reef - Sumps & Fuge's for designs and instructions on DIY.

Sumps and Wet/Dry are two different pieces of equipment, though a wet/dry can often be converted into a sump by removing the bioballs, filter pads, etc.

Yes but that site has links on the side to take you to the other filtration equipment they offer, that was mine from a bookmark.
