Set-up Diagram

Could aynone point me to a good diagram of a full set up. I am trying to educate myself with respect to the components of a full set-up.
I Googled for a while but the only one I found was that linked below. Is this image pretty exhaustive?

Mine has two overflows that gravity feed the refugium which goes over into the bioballs(soon to be LR rubble) and under a baffle to the return area where I have a mag9.5 and a mag 12 that returns the water up top. Not much on drawing so I hope you can grab that.

What size tank you puting together? That drawing implies a larger tank with an overflow box drilled.

The tank is a pre-drilled 70 gallon "corner bow". The overflow is in the rear center.

After a little web research, I get it. Do you keep any livestock permanently in the refugium?

Other than pods and a few snails that find their way there, there is no livestock in the fuge. Some people will put hermit a/o other crabs there after removing the littel devils from the main tank.

I got a couple peppermint shrimp, tiny crabs, and an emerald green. Of course the live rock pieces (rubble and medium pcs), and chaeto. Oh yeah the resident pods and worms.
