the sump is just like any other filter... but with more water and filter medias....
you can use the same arrangement with the fresh water set up...

No the things on the left is the protein skimmer and a reactor of some sort, the only pieces you will be using would be a heater and return pump. If theres a local reef club or facebook group you could sell them, i can give you a good idea of a asking price if i knew the make and model and see a pic

you only need a return pump in your sump

you have a phosphate ractor is looks like, a protein skimmer and some other junk, take all that out, clean it and sell it.

this is your basic sump

overflow into sump, through media and return pump


Haku, I knew your were good.
