i am not to sure about my sumps setup at the moment.

1.first pic is the top up tank and the sumps fourth chamber(return)
2.second and third pic is of the 1st, 2nd and third chambers in the sump.
3.fourth pic is the overall.
i have removed the bio balls but i just dont have a dsb.
which chamber would i setup the dsb in my sump and what lighting should i put over the sump(space limited in working erea)

Hi Wayne, I'm not sure if I am seeing your sump correctly but here's how I would set it up, in the 1st chamber will be your skimmer, 2nd will be floss and/or some live rock, 3rd will be DSB and 4th will be return pump.

Good stuff, now that you are setup nicely you need to try and get some more live rock in your display tank. What is the size of your tank?
