Only the inside hole has to be plugged. Just so long as the water needs to come over the top and through the surface skimmer teeth, you will be fine.

Ok, thanks. I wasn't sure if the air gap was wide enough to allow unwanted visitors to enter.

But if fish can fit... They will take a ride to the sump.

How so? They still have to navigate the surface skimmer teeth.

If you look at the pic. The first wall is wide open with that hole. If it goes in there.. The hole.. it will go straight to the top on the back side of the teeth. Drop into the back side and to sump..

I don't see it. Then use your own discretion cainboy.
What I'm saying is that little area between the two panels is fine to have whatever live in.
