a sump is basicly another tank that you connect to your main tank to put your equipment in, if made right it becomes a much more efficient filter and is very good at lowering nitrates, nitrites and ammonia
in a sump the water flows in then im many cases flows over a media to hold beneficial bacteria, then it flows through a sock or sponge to catch any debris just like in a HOB filter.

this is a picture of a setup much similar to the sumps we run at work
