Well my return pump is a Mag 9.5 and the inlet and outlet on that are 3/4. As far as how much, I'm not sure bc I'm not yet fully understanding where everything is going to lol

I know, Im not leaving you with much information for you to help me :/ lol

If I made the first baffle at 10" and every baffle after that a half inch smaller and made a stand for my skimmer, would that be okay?

Okay so 13inches for the skimmer section.. 1 inch between each baffle for the bubble trap and I guess the return will be as small as pump?

I would go with 3/4" between baffles and keep the return chamber a bit larger then the pump to allow room for more equipment and compensate for evap since the smaller the chamber the faster evap will cause your pump to run dry.
