Ok...like mentioned in my earlier post...I'm a newbie to the sump system one of my main questions was the pluming aspect of the sump. I'll seen a bunch of vids on youtube about sumps ... but I have yet to see a sump on a tank with dual overflow

dual overflows are no big deal; you can run two pieces of flexible tubing into a Y and then into your sump or you can run both direct to the sump, or you can hard plumb directly into the sump or into a Y and then into a sump. Its really just about how much work you want to do. Plumbing freshwater is something I've personally never done, but I've seen picture of some done on here. Megoosh had one he did on his 30 that looked like a pretty cool set-up.

One problem with the built in overflows, as already pointed out, is that the tank has to be full in order for them to work.
