Thank you all for your informative input. Yes, I forgot to put in my blog that I am using the RO water. I bought this RO system: http://www.marinedepot.com/md_viewIt...product=KM1431
I am not sure I use it correctly. It states that it generates ~35 GL/day. Mine is 35 GL / 4 hours !!!!!
Not so I am doing it right.
For the shell on the bottom of the tank, is it really bad to have? Compared to live sand, which one is better?
Once again, thank you much for the feedback. Enjoy your holiday and your tank (if any

The nice thing about sumps is you can put most of your equipment (heaters/chillers, skimmers, etc.) in the sump and not in the tank. Also, you can use LR in the sump to help with the natural filtration.
If you haven't already, I suggest using RO water. Tap water may contain heavy metals, chlorine/chloramine, and NITRATES that would not be healthy for fish and have been known to cause algae.
