BONK (hitting myself in the head)

Alright, nothing like making something harder than it is. I have this lovely little 29 gal tank that I have been using for a QT.
There is also a nice space to the left of my tank, hmmmm upon measuring it would fit perfectly.

Now... I am going to have 2 overflows from lifereef (they haven't arrived yet), one on either end. Could I have the one on the left go dierctly to the fuge and then down to the rubbermaid sump under the stand? Would approx 600-700 GPH be too much through a fuge?

If not then I could just do it that way and save a lot of headaches worrying about tight seals on the rubbermaid and I would have a good volume. How silly am I??

So your going to have 2 overflows in the main tank. One will go to the sump and the other too the fuge. How are you getting the water from the fuge to the sump?

I don't know that yet but it's gotta be easier than trying to figure out the two tub thing. It will be higher than the sump and maybe I could drill a hole through my stand, any ideas? Denise

Run one overflow in the main tank and one in the fuge. They both goto the sump and have a larger return pump splitting flow to both tanks.

Although this wouldn't put water straight from the display to the fuge, but water will get there anyways.

Just an idea.
