I Got a A Miracle SL250 sump for $10 and an going to try and set it up .Never had a sump before was cheap so i thought what the heck.If anyone is using this sump or knows about it please let me know.From what i have read is best to get rid of the bio balls compeletly and set it up more as a berlin sump with live rock in the first chamber with the skimmer ,in the other chamber i was told to put refugium mud with strainer .Would this work and run ok? Any ideas would be great
