    After the skimmer make a filter sock or even two and sit one in side the other and clean regularly the first one and the other each week or two.
    Then have some calcium media in one compartment of 2 to 4 millimetres in one half and 5 to 8 in the other half in diameter so the water passes through the larger particles going past the smaller, this will act as a deep sand bed with the finer grains and the larger will oxidise parts of the nitrogen cycle.
    Then if the water makes contact with the air first, have an egg crate tray with some fine mesh to sit some nitra guard titanium and under it another tray of some GFH and under it another if there is room, have a bag of carbon on it with the water flowing though it, then return pump and you have it all covered.
