I like the top off water idea as this is something that is worrying me at the moment. But my tank has a built in protein skimmer and section full of bio balls. Do I need to do this process twice in a sump as well?

No you don't need to duplicate it. In-sump skimmers tend to work better than HOB versions. Or you could move the skimmer to the sump. Personally not a fan of bio-balls though. If you decide to keep them, make sure to clean them every now and then as they can become nitrate factories.

Cool new additions, just make sure your Damsels don't get too agressive in time.

The fish to the cat are just like a TV, lol.
