Ok, this may be a little unorthodox but using two sumps is what I ended up doing. Left side, overflow drains to bioball side, to the return pump and GFO. The right side is feed from a ball valve from the return line to the skimmer side, and the refugium gravity drains in to the left side return.

I like the bioballs addition. I don’t see much “advanced” biological filtration on many saltwater tanks compared to freshwater probably due to the rocks handling it all. Are you planning on stocking heavy down the road?
