    This is the idea im going with, 2x 24 inch by 12 inch Tanks.. connected by a overflow .. Sence i dont have the space to put a larger tank becouse of the center braces.. So this idea will work very well

    JMO, but you don't need all those baffles in the 1st tank. 1 underflow baffle would suffice.
    Also, make the output from your skimmer fall into the 2nd tank directly, you don't want to be reskimming the same water over and over.
    Is that LR going to be a cryptic zone?

    I agree with Toutouche regarding the baffles.
    As for the cryptic zone. This is an area within the sump that house liverock in complete darkness. It would be a refugium of sorts for night dwelling creatures and will increase the bio-diversity of your tank and filtration as well.

    As Tanggeek said.
    It also usually ends up growing lots of tiny FDusters and sponges.
