What I did was figured a 20 long is 12 inches high so 3" hold 5gallons, so 10" will hold about 16 1/2 gallons that will give you 3 gallons of play.can you adjust the overflow height or might have to turn down return so the water is not half way up on overflow weirs. Drill two 1/8" holes on return just below water surface to prevent back siphon. Check out Melevs reef sumps good info and tips. I think you will be close think it thru and you should be fine.
