    If I understand the question I would use the 3 vortex chambers fed by the bottom drain:

    Vortex 1: static K1 as prefilter
    Vortex 2: fluid bed K1
    Vortex 3: either another static K1 chamber or use the matting.

    Personally I would not use brushes. I would put the rock into shower trays fed by the skimmer.
