i build my own wet/dry. from what i read, its an excellent filtration system, you have lots of area for bacteria to grow so the water gets filtered really well. its an excellent way of mixing in oxygen with the water to, so for me, i ran without a bubble wand.

basically water is drawn from the tank down to the sump through an overflow box. the box prevents the main tank emptying all the water when the power is out. water then then pass through, typically a filter to remove any large particles or waste, then trickled down onto the bio balls. water is collected at the bottom and a pump pumps the water back into the main tank.

be sure to soak everything and clean everything off before you use it.
