Instead of running a short 9" tall refugium (because the baffles need to successively get shorter) in the center of your sump, why not split the overflow and direct 80/20 or 70/30 (or whatever ratio you determine is appropriate) to your socks on one side and the opposite end of the sump have your fuge with a height all the way to the top of your sump? Have your skimmer chamber either within your sock chamber, or have it the following chamber. Then have your return chamber between your skimmer and your fuge.

Nice fuge design, I have a 55g sump with the same design only my skimmer is before fuge after the overflow chamber so it catches mostly everything that the sock doesnt that way the water returning to tank from fuge is perfect. My fuge is 13 inches wide 14 inches tall and 14 inches long. Nice Job! Good luck with the build.

80 frag

Hey Tony, nice to see you found a 80 frag tank. Wish you lots of luck with the new set up. Please keep the pictures coming. That is a beautiful tank. I wish I could have set mine up.
