I see you got a decent bit of room left. Are you gonna be placing the skimmer outside the sump or installing any reactors?

Id say in that size system you may see .5 degrees change from the one return pump but they begin adding up when considering powerheads skimmer Uv and anything else. Imo external is the way to go. If I had the room in my stand that's what I would have done. External return,skimmer, and reactors leaving as much room as possible for my fuge
