Does anyone have any experience with so called "bottom draw overflows"
(See option #5 in the link below)
http://www.midwestcustomaquariums.com/a ... m-options/

Does this work? I've leaned toward canister filters over overflow/sump set ups purely because I don't care as much about skimming (freshwater), and I love how canisters get particles suspended in the mid to lower part of the tank quite effectively, allowing the sand to look much better between vacuuming. I really want to switch to a sump because of all of their advantages.

Anyone have a clue if they really are effective with getting particles suspended in the bottom third of the tank?
Presumably the tank won't empty in case of a power or pump failure, or if the pump can't "keep up"?
Waiting to hear back from the manufacturers, but I'm pretty sure I'll get a much more unbiased opinion here.
