Not sure what advice you want. But I'd for sure put the skimmer, heaters and a hob filter in the sump. Also, maybe consider getting a filter sock for your intake to the sump (clean regularly or change it out to avoid nitrate issues). If also recommend getting some macroalgae in the sump for nitrate removal and also a place where amphipods, Copepods and other delicate animals can thrive. A deep sand bed >4 inches or miracle mud would be good for this section. One more thing... If you're worried about flooding look into check valves. I've never had a sump but really want one! Good luck! If I made any mistakes feel free to correct me as I'm only a puny human
