DIY Refugium Pics/Diagrams

Hello All,
Can you anyone supply me with a link(s) to pics or diagrams of a sump/refugium? I plan on making on out of a twenty gallon glass aquarium, but need help with the construction of the internal walls that will need to built.

I have searched the for diagrams with on avail. I thought I would ask here before purchasing a "DIY Refugium" pdf online.

Thanks in advance!

Thanks,
What I'm trying to do is convert a 20 gal glass tank into a sump/refugium. I am not going to be placing my protein skimmer in it or using any bioballs. So on the side (the right-hand side) were the overflow spills into the tank, will I have to construct walls inside the tank to divide it off or can it simply spill into the refugium (those increasing the size of the refugium)?

Also have you thought of using two smaller tanks to get more capacity. I'm using a 15 gal for a fuge that dumps into a 20H sump
