Great tank high def

I am a newbie and I have a few questions for you. I want to be sure I understand how your tank is set-up, for my future tank project.

THe way I understand your set-up, for circulation your tank has 2 main feeds to move water. One is the return from your basement sump. The other is the closed loop, which takes water out of the tank via a bulkhead, then a pump returns that water back into your tank at a high velocity...there are no filters in this loop, just the pump.

For filtration you are using the "Berlin" method consisiting of about 1/3 of the tank filled with LR, and then you have a powerful skimmer in the basement sump.

Does this summarize your filtration and circulation?
Do you use any other filtration, like mechanical or wet/dry?
