I need advice for my new set-up

O.K. I just got a 120 gallon tank. Here is what I'm planning.....120 reef with about 150 lbs. LR 3-4" DSB with about 1600 gph circulation to start off. This tank will have a 30 gallon sump with bio-balls, LS & LR.

I am converting my 55 gal into a refugium with tons of Red Mangrove Tuber and some Shaving Brush. Later on, I might add some nice species only kinda stuff. I am gonna have this tank overflow into my 120 gal.

I'm thinking of having the sump return to the 55, which will overflow into the 120. What are your general ideas? Advice? AND....I want to do a plenum in the refugium. Is this a good idea?

Please PM me if you have any good designs for a plenum. I would appreciate any advice and/or experience tips for the above. Thanks alot.
