    I do. I'll probably make a variation of this one next and eliminate the need for an additional pump. I'm thinking of just using gravity and the outlet into the sump for the water flow.

    No water pump but need air pump. Water pumps are more quiet than air pumps in my experience. Both designs have their benefits. Square inch wise of growth material, the waterfall will export more nutrients plain and simple.

    Original post edited after I watched the video. I saw up flow and pictured something else then I watched.

    Adding a T and two ball valves to be able and adjust flow coming out of the drain lines from the tank would be the best option. First chamber ATS the. Filter floss then skimmer and then return pump I think would work great. We could use that middle chamber of your sump for the ATS and just reverse the flow of the entire sump.

    Yeah that sump is so big I'm not worried about having room.

    Plus with the 50 billion in and outlet holes I could even run loops in, out and around it!

    I had the same problem -- tons of growth on plugs but I think it simply came in on them. I fixed it by stacking egg crate in a tupperware container, filling it with hydrogen peroxide so that it just covered the plug and then put my frags in that to sit for half an hour. 95% of the time it only took one treatment.

    After I removed all the GHA from the display tank I installed an algae scrubber and it's a rare day when I see GHA in the display anymore.
