    Hi guys/gals,

    I'm getting a bigger sump for various reasons and I've decided on 4 chambers.

    1. Skimmer
    2. Filter Cloth Chamber
    3. DSB.
    4. Return.

    Now I don't really need the DSB as my system running on a pellet/skimmer combo. But I guess it wouldn't hurt and I can grow my cheato on top of it.

    My question:

    Is that order fine? Could I switch the skimmer and Filter cloth chambers around?

    Filter cloth/wool for me is a must and its 80% of the reason I'm getting a new sump.

    Thanks.
