I totally read that wrong. I thought you meant two different tanks being supplied by one sump.
It is pretty simple to set up a sump. The return needs to be slightly higher gallons per hour than the overflow. Then have the gate valve plumbed in after the return pump. Use the valve to restrict flow until the return matches the overflow.

I did get some things accomplished today. I cleaned the rocks and wood that came out of my tank. I cleaned the three glass lids that go on top the tank. And most importantly i started cleaning the tank. Its actually a lot harder than i thought it would be. I need to get my sump done so i can run the vinigar and water throught the overflow boxes.

I also need to get my wood to replace the bottom piece in my cabinet so i can put my sump in the cabinet. This should be number one on my list of things to do.
