Need more info. Main tank size ect. A good place for your info is in "myinfo"
I have a 30 gal reef with a 20 gal sump and a 5 gal fuge. With that small of a tank it won't leave much room for return pump, skimmer, or heater.

would this work?

have my overflow send water to the sump which then transports the water to the fuge(through two holes that will connect them) can i split the fuge length way so one side had macro bacteria and the pods and the other side has the return pump?

let me know what u think

Check these guys out... They can make a fuge as small as three gallons, or something. VERY pricey, but they show what can be done. I am thinking about doing a 7 gallon bowfront Dwarf Seahorse tank with a mini fuge out back like the one in the photos.

can overflows be hung on the side of the tank or do they need to be installed?
