if ur just givin it to em make them drive..
Sumps can go from simple and mild to crazy and extreme..... all u need is a tank that will fit in your stand (or fish room if you can do that then u can go alot bigger which is good also), that has a few baffles siliconed in place that will house your macro algaes, and skimmer in separate compartments. I know there are a few different designs, pretty sure u can find a few in the DIY section of the forum.
Personally I have a 4th bedroom behind my tank that was converted into a full on fish room.... I have a 100g rubbermaid thats super simple design, I just sectioned off an area for my macros with egg crate, and dropped my skimmer and return pump in the rest of it and plumbed it up, nothing fancy. But there are others who have mutiple tanks separating everything and a dedicated fuge
, deep sand bed etc..... Alot of it is really determined by the amount of space you have, and how difficult you want to make it IMO lol
