Is there a reason for the panel after the LR? I have seen people use egg crate? Maybe to keep debris for getting into the skimmer? Seems like the splashing would cause a ton of salt gathering on the sides and stuff.

in the video. water comes in to the LR area then goes over a 14" panel into where the skimmer is then into the bubble trap and back out.

Cutting some slots into the top of the panel or making the first panel a little shorter will cut down on the splashing somewhat.
If you used eggcrate for the first panel your water level in the first chamber will only be as high as the panel just after the skimmer.
