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.
