so are my baffles ok with respect to hight and to the distance between the first two? does it matter the way my water will flow through it? it will obviously flow right the left but does it matter that it flows over and under and back over the last baffle?

actually, i wouldn't keep the partitions the way you have them because it's going to blow the sand all over the place, or get blocked by sand and overflow over the top. i would use 1 partition between intake and refugium, and the bubble trap at the end, before the return.

So would i basically just leave the baffles the way they are setup and just put my return pump where my skimmer would be and put my skimmer in my return pump section of my drawing?..of course adjusting my baffles for space..

not quite. you don't want the water entering or exiting from the refugium down at the bottom. this is where your sand bed will be.
what sump are you going with? what room do you have in terms of footprint and height under the stand?

this skimmer is a decent one-

Thanks.. I have a 20 gallon long tank.. Dimensions are some where around 30x12x12 I believe... My height beneath my stand clears 23 inches..i can get about 25 inches if I cut out a section of a board that covers the top portion of the stand..

for sure i will get a octopus one i have seen many good reviews on them..

X is this something more along the lines as you were recommending as a sump? each divider would be 9.5" tall and bubble trap spaced 1" from each other...its a 20gallon long 30x12x12.
