the next chamber is chalked full of bioballs, Should I use a different type of media or should I refill with fresh bioballs?
Now I can use the rest as a refugium correct? Maybe put some plants or lava rock in there as extra filtration insurance?
Has anyone ever put a sponge filter in a sump to add filtration?

Any reason to use a surface skimmer in a FW tank?

Bamboo and pothos are terrestrial, so you would want roots only in the water.
