I just bought a 125g off of CL's:


it came with this sump/trickle filter (24Lx12Dx18H) and a 3 MDQX-SC Little Giant Quiet One Pump:


I have this sump (ok, it's dirty, sorry :oops: ) (24Lx13Dx14H) with a mag 9.5 pump:


I originally thought the sump that came with the set up was much smaller, it's actually bigger than my sump, but since it's a trickle filter, I think it will hold less water. Not sure which one to use, someone help me choose please.

I know nothing about sumps as I have never used one! Why not use both?!

It depends if one of those sumps will be your only filtration. If you have a hob or canister setup for mechanical/particulate, I would use the wet/dry for more efficient bio filtration. If the sump will be your only filter, I would use the one with the filter socks for mech. and also stuff some bio media in it somewhere.
