    Hello everyone. I am trying to make a wet / dry filtration system for use with my 55 gallon octopus tank. I recently purchased a 20 gallon tank to use as the container, an Eshopps PF-300 overflow box, an Eshopps PSK75 in-sump skimmer, some bioballs, and an Aqua-Supreme 400 GPH pump. I have a BASIC sketch of how I'm going to set this up, but was wondering if some of you guys could take a look at it and tell me what I can improve on. Here is my sketch:



    Thank you and have a great day!

    Can the bioballs be completely submerged?

    Unfortunately, it looks like Joe-Ceph is off-line ATM but if you will Google, wet dry filter construction there are a lot of tips there and information about how they work (including a video).
