This is my plan for a DYI sump and I would like any input on changes or problems that you might see...I would like suggestions on size of pumps for the sump and size of tank I was thinking maybe 10-20 gal it is for a 35 gal tank that I am going too set up...I need to know the best plants to use and media other then the bio-balls...I will be using a overflow box for the pick-up and the return tube will be 3\4" pvc...I also need to know which is better to have a pump on the inlet to sump like I show in my drawing or should I leave it too gravity...thx rob
