I set up a frag tank months ago with live rock in the sump as well as marine pure balls. Amazing how clean my glass stays. Very high flow sump. I love rock in the DT but think it’s doing wonders in my sump alone. I always have extra tock in my sumps and they are much cleaner than in DT.
What are “marine pure balls”?

To be honest with you, 50 pounds of Pond Matrix in the sump will be more beneficial than 500 pounds of rock, but rock looks cool and it gives you a place to glue corals to. Better in the display.

In my sump I use normal Matrix (had it left over from my freshwater days that I used in my ex canister filter)
