Do you have a return pump that will pump the water from the sump back into the main tank?

This is how i got my 49 gallon breeder set up. As you can see the black flexible hose is my drain and the skimmer is in the drain section then it flows into the refug and then bubble trap and then in to the return where a pump pumps it back in.

My sump only has 3 sections, one for the overflow, one for the skimmer, and one for the return. If i wanted to make a fuge, where would i put it? After or before thr skimmer?
