Anywho, if I were in your position, I would build a crude sump to house both of your current protein skimmers. You can use any size tank and it doesn't even need to have baffles.
There are plenty of options for pre-made HoB
overflow skimmer boxes, or you can get a kit to drill your tank for the skimmer box(which is fun) or you can even build an effective (but space consuming) PVC
You don't need a huge expensive water pump either, if you have something that will do 250gph + that will work (however bigger is always better IMO
I had some other stuff I was gonna say but I lost it when Capt tore this thread assunder!
