chaeto container?

Hi all, I purchased a 10 gallon aquarium from walmart today to house my chaeto, and just realized something.

I have my main sump with bio balls where my protein skimmer is, but I can't think of an efficient way to feed the water in and out of this 10 gallon.

Any thoughts/recommendations/ideas?

Thank you.

Can you guys post some pics of your refugium/sumps please? I could use some ideas for what my setup should look like.
