You can use sumps for freshwater. Its basically the same thing as a saltwater sump, except its freshwater.

Here's my howto for reverse photoperiod sump/fuge if you want it. Baffle designs are neater though, and my howto doesn't show Durso, the installation of which invloved me accidentally cracking the bulkhead . Link for sump/fuge in my sig has the AA thread where BillyZ and jsoong gave lots of help, too, if you want it.
