    on the right of the baffles/left of the fuge. Of course I could always connect it elsewhere. It won't be in-sump.... I'll run it on the outside of the sump.

    In that case, have the fuge exit after the skimmer's intake, maybe place a baffle somewhere.
    Otherwise, you'll be skimming out the "good bugs" overflowing from the 'fuge.

    That may work better... however, you may get bubbles from the refugium overflowing into the return pump's area.

    yah.... I thought about that. Maybe I should put the fuge in front so the overflow falls in between some baffles...
    Thanks man.
