I am working on a DIY 310g tank ATM and I've been trying to think of how to hide the pump. I came up with nothing good for in the tank so I have been trying to figure out something for under. Here's what I've come up with.



The Overflow will drain into the Mag 12 under the tank. The return line will obviously service the UGJ's. Since I will be using the Mag Drive out of water if there are no leaks there should be no trouble if the power goes out.

Thoughts?

There will be a Sump on the "other" side of the tank with another overflow there. The return from the sump will actually be along side the UGJ Overflow which should keep most/all detrius over on the sump overflow direction. I didn't include the sump return as I didn't want to complicate things on the drawing.

Here's a sketch of the sump:
