Sounds like making it harder than it needs to be.

No have only one spot to run a reef only & fish only tank & all 3 tanks work in the area I need . I know it will take a lot of work for it . But in the end it should look different

I was wondering if you could lay a AquaMaxx fluidized GFO & carbon filter Media Reactor on it side. If it still would work fine

Laying a media reactor on it's side will impede it's performance. Water will go through the easiest route, so the gap at the top of the media will be where most of the water will go and miss the GFO and carbon completely. I wouldn't recommend this.

Looks good. Is that a skimmer behind the filter sock? If so, you may need to build a little stand for it so it's in the correct water depth. Usually that's about 8-10 inches or so.
