Have you considered running both as drains and running the return either over the top or they the back?
Yeah couple people recommend me doing that. I didn’t want to run a return on top of the tank. The overflow has a lid. Praying to god nothing get stuck or clogged lol.

Bought some container from home depot. I coudn't find the brute tub-ware trash can, added the corals and Fishes into them. Added wave makers for circulation.

also made about 40 gallon brand new saltwater.

Everything went well, no death or anything! No casualties SPS doing well.
TRANSFER was a sucess!! used the same 50 gallon cube water and also another 50 gallon of brand new water that I made. Transfer over all the live rocks and ceramic media I had.

Update!

did some changes to the sump.

Getting tired of cleaning the filter socks and washing them. So I’m changing it into a refugium.

Added rubble rocks and order clean chaeto from @AlgaeBarn.

And order some led light.
