Acrylic Sump Filtration Systems Carbon Pillow
I've had a couple different type of sumps in my reef keeping days, and this is one of the better ones. The filter media keeps the water crystal clear and give a good surface area for beneficial bacteria growth. Also its easy to change the pads when needed.

Very happy with this filter
Besides having a problem with a cracked drain hose at startup (marineland replaced the part free of charge) I have been very happy with this filter. I have the Model 4 on a 300 freshwater turtle tank. The filter requires very little maintenance. I do recomend using bulk filter padding cut to size over the highly overpriced filter media sold by Marineland.

This product is "Way" over priced.
Poor design only let's the flow trickle over the front part of the filter media,
Hardly any flow in sump area causing film to form on surface and dirt to settle on the bottom.
I've seen better for less.
