Yes I use filter pad from inTank for mine. The guy that made my sump made me a media basket off 1 corner in the sump. There is a tray that holds my filter pad. Socks suck they get dirty every 3 days and are a PItA to clean.

That's how mine is Lawman. A media holder thing in the corner. The water has to go through that before anywhere else.

So this media thing, how big of a surface area do you have for a filter pad?

 

The filter sock gets clean every 3-4 days like you said and is certainly a pain to clean. But it does pull a huge amount of crap. Right now I have a 300 micron mesh bag with pillow stuffing and it's not catching any of the fine crap, only the 200 micron felts do that.

I use pantyhose for a filter sock, but you cant go by me, I dont have any morals lol

Love the look I get from the cashout lady when I come rolling up with a pack of pantyhose and start asking questions like, do you think these will fit my tanks overflow pipe? Haha.

biggest problem with going pico sump- is the return pump issue.there is not a whole lot of room for evaporation. ATO is a must! my pico system evaporates about a liter every 4-5 days.

Hard to get a pic of because I have the sump placed front to back. In the back behind skimmer is a large micron bag.
