well, the water in the tank of the oscars, does it has to be on the same level as the biofilter. or can i put the filter like, on the floor and the oscartank a meter above it. i tought, if i would to that my tank would empty itself. tho, if i use your plastic thingy, will it be possible to put my filter on the floor and my oscartank a meter up.

( photoshopping a picture for you :P )

i think i understand what you mean now. and no the levels dont have to be the same. in most cases the sump sits under the main tank so not to be seen. hence the reason for an overflow.

if you are using the deisgn i have in the diy section then all you have to do is make the intake pipe at the level you want your water to be at and when it drops it will only drain into the sump until the level get lower than the intake. then it will stop.
jsut make sure that you have enough room in the sump so it wont overflow and your done.

the important thing is to make sure that the rate that the overflow drains(in gph)is close to or the same as the output of the pump you are using(in gph) so the level remains consistant.
