Red face Need advice- 29 gallon sump

So I'm finally about to turn a extra 29 gallon tank into a sump for my 55 gallon tank. I have read a lot about the whole deal but could still use advice. Here is my layout I'm going to have an external overflow leading down to the first chamber in my sump where there will be a protein skimmer then baffles. In the middle will be my refugium then more baffles then my return pipe..... Does that sound right?? Please give me all the advice you want and let me know if I'm doing it wrong

Yes thats correct. Use two baffles to create a bubble trap for both dividers. Kinda like this.
