How to set up sump?

Recently aquired a tank with a home made sump. Didn't have a chance to talk to previous owner about how to set up filter/bio media. How should I set this up to function efficently for fresh water? I would like to make use of the k2 media and ceramic tubes/bio balls (will I need more?)

Measurements Red top 16", Blue 14", yellow top 13", purple top 15.5"
