Used the coarse Matala like material in the first basket of the existing sump.
Was actually thinking about the foam Steve sells and checking on flow characteristics based on core size. Considering the use of two panels so I can 'fuge the center.

I just wanted to say THANK YOU!

After hours of searching the internet looking for freshwater planted aquarium sumps, I stumbled upon this post. I signed up to thank you for sharing this.
This is ONE of very few freshwater sump designs I have been able to find with plant life taken into consideration.

Outstanding job, neat, organized, easy to maintain and covered to limit CO2 loss.

Only thing left to say...I most likely am going to steal this idea!
Thanks again
