It'll be fine if you take that filter floss and filter pad out of the right chamber.

Your filtration in a saltwater tank is 1-1/2 to 2 lbs of live rock per gallon, 4-6" of sand in your sand bed, and a protein skimmer. This Cyclon Bio-Filter has a protien skimmer built in.

You might want to grab an old tank and build your own sump, and spend the rest on a quality Protein Skimmer. Read Understanding Sumps in the sumps section of this forum for some helpful hints in building your own sump.

You can use this as your sump. Just make sure you take all that filter media out and run it empty.
