Honestly if you already have a sump with any sort of reasonable bio filtration, I'm doubt the cost/benefit ratio of the RUGF makes sense in this case. You can already put way more bio than you'll ever need in the sump, and a RUGF doesn't make a terribly good mechanical filter. If you had no sump, then imho a RUGF would be a fine way to go. Have you considered simply putting a HOB (such as an AC running double sponges, or a HOT magnum) on the back with the intake down in the area you want to pull the poo from? maintenance would be easier, as would the initial setup.

To each their own though -- my tank is going to be totally overkill in a different fashion, so if it makes you happy, do it!
