Absolutely nice design to start. The whole design including the sump is great. Why don't you fix the aquaponic system along with the aquarium. It will look great.

Hey, looks pretty cool. Quick question, the T that you have in the middle of the tank is supposed to vent water into both the tank and the above fixture correct?

Yes... the same pump will do the job of taking the water to both aquariums (think it will need a way to choose the amont of water that go for each system (a valve or so...))
Thanks for the comment

Looks like you are getting great growth? I assume nitrates would be very low from plants but wondered out of interest how ph was - I have (rarely) seen a few low phs from the plants consuming buffers as well.
