I would conisder swapping the fuge and the return. If the return happens before the fuge, the fuge is not going to get very much circulation or fresh water.



That's a schematic i made a while ago. My actual sump has some minor altercations, but the arrangment of the plexiglass is the same. In a setup like the picture i posted, even at a relativly fast flowrate (+200gph), there is negligable suface movement in the fuge area.

there will be to much flow to have it inline, i plan on using a t and ball valve on the intake to devert some flow to the fuge
