~Recomendations / Help on a small in-sump skimmer~

Trying to convert my wet/dry to a sump (still need help.....hint, hint )
The filter measures 24 L x 10 W x 16 H. Sump area measures 8 x 10.
My tank is a 46 BF, with a small fish load & about 100 lbs of LR.

I was thinking of a "etss reef devil."
Would this be good?
Any other recommendations are appreciated.
Thanks!!!!!

I'm using a reef devil on my 120, it does a decent job.

though everyone who see's it tells me to upgrade.
someday soon I will.

on your 46 it should be perfect.

sorry I missed the ?, I'm using the bio balls it came with, they are blue, that's all I know. every few months I take them out and clean them.
maybe I should replace them? it's been a few years, that's what the instructions say, but how can they wear out?

someday I will be selling mine, but it won't be too soon, I have to make the upgrade first.
