Fluval fx5 question

I currently have a 125 g reef setup. I am in the market for a sump and I would like to kill two birds with one stone on this one. Currently I have a protien skimmer, plus a small bio skimmer as well as my Fluval heads all visible in the tank. I would like to make it to where I can put only two main heads that go into the middle of the tank, which I could conceal behind my rock. Is it possible to rig my fx5 somehow to pull the water to the sump and then return to the tank? The I could put both of my skimmers in the sump. Ideas? Suggestions? Thank you!

Why would you use an FX5 for that? Why not use a regular HOB overflow box (I am assuming the tank isn't drilled) and a return jet?
