Question OverFlow Box Help and Suggestion! :-)

Alright many of you know I wanted to design a New Stand and make a SUMP/Refugium but with the Apartment landlord putting a Stop to it it killed my whole plan to make it. Any ways. I want to still make my Sump/Refugium I since my stand can only fit 10 Gallon tanks under it I was thinking of doing 2x 10 Gallon tanks One for Sump and the Other for Refugium I have to different design that I want to do but I am kind of in a mix up and what I want to do. First should I do a single Overflow Box or Should I do a Dual Over flow Box. The only reason being is becasue I want to also have overflow going into the Fuge and returing into the Sump as return. Or should I get a Single and Split it off just wondering will that work on a Single overflow to split off two way plumbing one to the main and one to the Fuge. That way I would not have to get a Dual. Just wondering what will work out better?
Any Suggestion or Comments or Ideas I will take Let me know


Thanks

I would suggest getting a dual overflow so you don't have to split the drain line of a single. You will get better flow with the dual over the single.

If you are doing the two tanks for a sump/refuge then I agree with Allen. Dual overflows would work better.

1200 Gallons for Over flow you think that would be to much? I take it I would have to get the Mag 9.5 to make it work? or can I still stay with the mag 7?
