Sump - best configuration for cichlid tank?

Looking for feedback from sump users..100-gallon tank, center overflow with 2 drains and 2 returns. I had an FX6 but decided to go with a sump instead.

A friend suggested a K1 moving media bed as the best option, but I'm open to suggestions.

Honestly. Take it to Monster fish keepers or a dedicated Reef forum. No one knows here.

Not sure about the sump, but your friend it correct that K1 in a fluidized bed is probably the best media. Second would be just filled with simple pot scrubbies.
