HAHA! i think my little brain clicked.
What if the water drips from the tank in to the wet/dry system, and a canister filter's intake is on the wet/dry filter, and the output leads to the tank?
I have no idea how they work, noone listen to what i just wrote above. Just a guess

Water enters the drip plate of the wet dry filter from an overflow on the tank.
The drip plate distributes the water evenly so that it can drip on all areas of the filter media. Since the filter media will always be damp and not submerged, the beneficial bacteria is exposed to atmospheric oxygen which causes them to function more efficiently, the dripping of the water also oxygenates it very well. There is a power head placed in the sump of the wet-dry that returns the water to the tank. In the event of a power outage the power head will shut off and the water in the tank will settle to the top of the overflow. The sump must be large enough to hold this amount of water without overflowing. when the electricity comes back on the power head will start back pumping and the cycle will resume.
