2 Tank/2 Sump setup...Help

I had my 90 Gallon setup with FOLR but took it down to get some new carpeting. I recently finished my basement and built my 90 into the wall and made an "aquarium maintenance" room behind the tank which I told my wife is a "utility" room. I installed a 2 tub laundry tub in the room and my RO/DI unit is being shipped right now!

Anyway, I have a 20L tank I want to incorporate as a fuge (to have pods so I can have a Green Mandarin). The fuge would simply be the tank. I also have an extra sump (and MAG pump) I would like run as I am not sure the sump I have is rated for over 100 gallons. I also have a Magnum 350 laying around so maybe I can incorporate that as well.

Question is... how can I put all of this together without overflowing or running a sump dry? Remember all the equiptment is out of sight in a room so I am not restricted to putting things under the tank, I can put things at any levels.

I am willing to purchase extra plumbing, pump, etc to get it going.

Here is a diagram of the parts I have...just need to connect them together!

Thanks in advance for help!
90G RR, 20L Fuge, 50+ lbs LR (more planned), 55G Sump, Mag 5, Rio 3100, ASM G3, Outer Orbit 2x150w HQI/T5, UV Sterilizer, Hydor 3

Fish - Tomato Clown, Black Chromis Planned - Green Mandarin, Corals, few more..
