Big aquarium vs. small aquariums. The size of the room that will house the aquarium is an important factor to consider when choosing a large or small aquarium. Other factors include water quality and maintenance. A large aquarium is easier to maintain than a small one because the water temperature and quality are more consistent.

Cost starts as low as $50 for a 30-gallon aquarium and increases exponentially for large or custom-made fish tanks.

Sometimes debris can collect at the very bottom underneath all the media, this doesn't normally happen with bio balls, although I have experienced it happening with Alphagrog. This media grid will help ensure there is always a void underneath the media so the water can flow freely between the two chambers.

Another bit of useful advice would be to use media bags inside your sump filter. This basically means that instead of having to scoop media out by the handful, the media is contained in a bag which just needs to be lifted out in one go. My philosophy is if you're going to go to the extent of installing one of these filters then do it properly and make life as easy as you can for yourself. Finally, if you really want to make your sump efficient when it comes to cleaning, you could put some outlets on it so that you basically attach a tube, open the taps and then drain all the crap out from the bottom.

For a fraction of the price of a large canister filter, you could set up a large sump filter that will completely blow any commercial filter out of the water when it comes to efficiency.Traditionally, sump filters were used on saltwater tanks where good water quality is essential.
