your not stupid. i think i half understood this concept from your build. the return is parted to the fuge to supply water.

only running 1 overflow vs two like your set up.

dragonetts are really cool fish, I have never kept a mandarin but currently have a female scooter, I had a pair and they would do their dance it was very cool. I bought him because i had too many pods but it only took a couple of days for him to eat all of them in a 20 gallon.a few months later a bought the female, Sadly he just disappeared one day a couple of months back. here is a link to a mandarin diner http://www.melevsreef.com/mandarin_diner.html.
