Yep the second pic has the sumps , I have the first sump setup with Live plants and now a metal halide over top of it.
The second sump is sort of a settling tank,trying to think how to make it a more complete filter system. I have the sumps hooked with a float to maintain the water level and freshness

Also have some Sumbu comps and callochromis Flames, and some kitumba brevis in the tank.

Like the "out of the box" idea there, then it's not so out of the box if you think about it.
