In the middle of setting baffels

Thanks for all the input before about the sump I'm building. Right now I'm setting bubble trap baffels and I'm kind of worry. I orderd three the same size 11x 11 3/4 . I just realize that middle one will be 1" of the bottom, so it will be only 1" above baffles 1 and 3. Is that good. I'm worry that some water might go over not under that baffle. Or it is o.K?????? Please let me know ASAP so I can finish. And HAPPY NEW YEAR TO EVERYBODY!!!!!!!!!!!!!

1" should be ok. The sump shouldn't be flowing at such a high rate of speed that it becomes a problem. If the water was going fast then maybe... but not a sump.
