Do I just allow the refugium to fill up with water, flow over the divider into the return pump area and then it goes into main tank that way?
That's EXACTLY how mine is setup... I have a 20Gal Long sump with 1 divider. one side (smaller) is the return section, and the larger section is the fuge.
Here is a pic from the 1st week it was setup. I've since added more LR
and the Cheato now takes up a good portion of the fuge area. Grows like a weed
