great sump : Benamayer ! very neat looking
although i would prefer going a bit higher. to have about 20-23gal in the sump.

but i wouldn't recomend a 10gal sump... just not big enough to fit anything. go bigger if you can!

it would be helpful if you describe your aquarium setup and how you have it running right now.

Yes go bigger if you can because I have a 10 gal sump and its only skimmer, heater and return in there. Not enough space for fuge.

I have a 10 gallon sump I just built. I made the first baffle at a 45 degree angle and put the intake and skimmer together. The middle section is a fuge an d last section is the return. It is my first sump build, but so far I like it because with the first baffle at 45 degrees I looks like just a fuge and a return.

Benamayer's is a perfect blue print of a nice sump. Thanks for sharing!
