Yea it's not the way I originally planned. There is the intake on one side which will have bio balls then move to my skimmer. After that I only had room for a two baffle bubble trap. Since it's a fish live rock only tank, bubbles aren't a huge concern for me. So a two baffle might not work as well as a three baffle bubble trap, Im not too concerned. Next section (the middle section) is where my return will be. The final section is the refugium. I will be running a small pump (only 100gph) through a UV sterilizer and phos reactor which will drain into the refugium keeping a low flow though the refugium. So yes I messed up from my original plan but it should still work for Wat I need it too.

Okay, now I see what is going on. There are gaps at the bottom of the baffles to allow for water flow. I didn't see that before. That will work.

Yes it def wasn't how I planned but I was able to make it work. And all the tall pieces have a 1 inch gap from the bottom. And thanks to everyone following and giving advice. It's greatly appreciated. Haven't had a lot of time to work on the project due to me working. But should be able to work on it this and next week some more.

I used .5 inch flat board that i cut into the sizes i needed. Then painted the boards with a flat black paint and primer. Then i drilled the boards to the 2x4 frame. I painted each board one more time. Then did one coat of the same poly clear coat as before.
