Default DIY - Drum Trickle Filter

I'm in the process setting up 5ft outdoor aquarium.
Just want to share the DIY filteration (still on going).

I'm using 60liter blue drum as the housing the coralife salt tub and normal pail.

Stand with slot. Internal base of the drum has 'hump' across.

Using Eheim 2026 pump as a return pump.
Silicone sheet as vibration/noise damper.
Some in/out flow piping work done.

Got extra scouring pad.
Thought of using them as filter media.
Glued with hot glue - 2 layers each.
