Planning new rimless build-answers and advice

I am thinking b/w 80-90 gallons 30L x 26W x 24H. Really liked marineland cube 93 but 30 depth just too much.

What I am thinking is rear middle overflow and since I want this against the wall , a dry area for some vortechs.

Something like this. How safe is this for dry side?

I already have mp-10...would I go another mp-10 or mp-40?

Should I go with 1 mp-10 and then some koralias or similar? Which ones and how many?

Should I have 1 return or split return to come out opposite sides on back overflow wall?

I have already decided on 2 kessil s thanks to previous advice here.

Uh, why don't you just put the dry side outside of the tank and the wet-side inside on the side of the tank.

The back side of the tank is right against a wall. I want it to be rimless and unobstructed view from 3 sides, hence the pics I showed in the overflow.

Oh, well.. I'm not sure then. I just keep it outside the tank, I guess if it sealed really well.

While that looks really cool and sleek, I dont know it would be worth the risk for me. If your tank overflowed, those pumps would be toast....or really, any variety of reasons that they would get splashed on, or too much condensation. if you want them there, maybe look at some other pumps that can get wet....jeabos or koralias.
