I have a 270l reef tank, 25Kg LR that's running for 2 years now.
From my main tank it runs threw a sump with a Skimmer and then threw a "eco aquilizer" back in MD

I would like to upgrade my sump to a sump thats more effictive than mine,one thats more benificial.
I would like to house cularpa in my sump that wil feed on phos and NO3.
One with best filtration and biological compounds?
Do you have any ideas?

Looking at your sump i would go for a sump with an inlet chamber where your skimmer would feed from. The second chamber being the largest would be for a deep sand bed with cheato instead of caulerpa and the third chamber for return pump. If you have enough live rock in the system you wont need all the bio filters you running at the moment.

Welcome Lanzo! Hope you enjoy our company! 2 years already of reefkeeping? Not bad - so, you have gone through a lot already, right?

Regarding your sump - Alan said it all.... Only one thing I would like to add - the bigger the sump the better (actually, the bigger the refugium/DSB, the better)....

Yes, please - post some more pictures..... And a Full Tank Shot (FTS) ;-)
