    Please can someone put up a close up pic of their sump. I have set mine up and not sure if I have done it right. I want to have a deep sand bed and a section for live rock. Should each section flow into the next without being able to run back?

    That should be how it works. My return pump is in the far right chamber, sand bed in the middle and return from tank in the left chamber which also houses my skimmer.
