Sump Idea

I am planing on building my own sump. It will be a 10gal tank (thats all my foot print can do). The items will be:

CPR CS50 Overflow Box
Hydor SELTZ L30 Pump 320 gph
Coralife Super Skimmer 65

My max head doesn't exceed the 75" on the pump. I think it's somewhere around 55"
This setup will be on my 38gal bowfront. Any thoughts would be great, as i plan to have this up and running in the next week.

you might want to change the pump for a higher flow rate,after 55" the pumps gph wont be much,try to match the pumps gph after 55" to the overflow you choose.I like the syphon tube overflows rather than the aqua lifter overflows.
