I would use a filter sock. Something you can change out easily and on a regular basis. I would have the filter sock and skimmer in the first chamber, then refugium in the second, then return area with pump in the 3rd.

How big is this sump going to be? I made my own holders for 7" socks because it's important to me to turn them inside out and save all the life I can off of the sock before I toss it in the washer. If your sump is tight, you might have to go with a 4" sock.

I made mine out of plywood, using a jigsaw-

The sump is going to be about 30-40 gallons. I plan to make the entire sump tank myself from scratch, so the dimensions can be whatever but it can't exceed 36 inches wide.
