Unless you put a valve on the section back to the sump it won't work real well. Water takes the path of least resistance. If the line back to the sump is left completely open then all the water will be just pumped back to the sump.

(to DT)

(valve)

|-------(valve)------(to sump)------

(return pump)

The valve between the "T" and the DT may not be needed but just in case I would put it in anyway.

Well blert I took your advice and hooked my sump turn like you said and put a mag 9.5 on it instead of the mag 24 and it works like a charm I add about a 4 or 5" sand bed now all I need is some algae for it and I should be good to go I also put in about 40 lb of LR where the overflows drain in if any one can think of anything else I should do or need please fill free to let me know thank you
