The value fixtures from Reef Breeders cannot do the morning evening transition. You will need to attach 2 timers in order to have the blues come on and go off by themselves. Meanwhile, I would suggest a straight blue and white fixture, not one of these.
Also, the morning/evening transition is just for aesthetics- your corals are not going to care either way.

Yes, it looks good. It looks like you aren't going to have much room in that sump if the power goes out. Better do a few tests. You are going to need to prop that skimmer up a bit. They are usually in about 10" of water.

Have you tried to shut down the pumps and see how much the sump fills up?
