Ill b using a seperate overflow for the fuge. Ill use the return hole thats in the overflow so i can run the return straight up the back from the pump. I assume ones for return anyhow

No the drawing in post #11 won't work well. you need to split the drain pipe higher and angle down. A "y" connector would be best or a "t" with 45*s.
