I want to explore my possibilities with a sump. I have never made ,owned, or operated one. I currently have a 55 gallon tank running HOB's only.
1. Are sumps okay for freshwater?
2.If I were to set up a sump on my 55 how big if a tank should I use?
3.What is put in the bottom tank to filter the water?
4. I have heard of planted sumps to reduce nitrates, Is these easy enough to do with a noob like me?
5. My 55 is on a stand , total height of tank and stand is 48.5", what pump do you reccomend?
6.Saw a thread on a pvc overflow design, could this be worked in to be cheaper?

All info is greatly appreciated
