If both tanks are drilled just run two returns from one sump and same for overflows. They would just share the sump

The DT is going inbetween a wall so I don't want any plumbing running down the center.. the frag tank will also be viewable from both sides and the sump will be underneath the dt with skimmer reactors doser etc.. hooked up to it

Looks good. Just make sure the qt isn't attached to the main system. Idk if you were thinking of doing that or not.

The flow through it doesn't really matter. It's just the actual flow inside. Since you want frags (I'm assuming some sps) your going to want to have a decent flow, so a couple power heads will be sufficient. I would go for atleast 20x overturn. I have that in my 150 predator reef and I'm going to add more power heads to get it to about 35-40x so you may want it in that range.
