Refuguim (ecosytem ) or sump?

My question is which should I go with ,I have an ecosytem refuguim now and that is my only means of filtartion along with a skimmer..I am getting into the hobby a little bit more serious now ,going from a 75 to a 90 reef ready tank and getting phos and carbon reactors..would it be wise for me just to make a sump and put all that in there along with my skimmer or stick with my refugium and run everything into and out of that ??Thanks Sal

Which Ecosystem refugium or sump you have? I have the 3012, 30x12x16. I think it depends on which size you have. If it is the bigger versions, why not just use it as a refugium? Save the money for something else. Also I prefer external skimmer myself, you can just run an external skimmer from the overflow. I put the heater, probes and filter sock in the first chamber, refugium in the middle and run carbon and phosban reactor in the 3rd.
