you could use pvc. 2 inch pipe would force the water through it.

A wet/dry is really not needed in such a small tank unless you have some very messy animals and need the ammonia converted asap. Using a wet/dry will just make the algae scrubber work that much harder. However, if you really want to run a wet/dry, the water should be overflowing through the drip plate and ceramic rings/bioballs first, then the algae scrubber, chemical media, and then the refugium. You could also split the 3 compartments altogether with the mechanical on the left, return in the center, and fuge on the right (or vice versa). As for a refugium, you can either use sand, mud, or neither.
