Check my overflow design please

After much research here on RC I have come up with the following overflow design. I will have 2 corner overflows. I plan on using a water blaster H5000 return pump which will have a flow rate of about 950gph @ 5 ft. I plan on running 75% back to the tank and 25% to the fuge. Tank will be a 150G 72X24X20. Will it work? All comments and suggestions welcome!

Thank You

Doesnt look like youll get much flow in box 2, would run both boxes w siphons and emergency overflows and take return over the back of tank. Or just run dursos in both and use other holes for returns. Look up the herbie drain method on the dyi section

Thanks. I understand the herbie method. Would it be difficult to fine tune both overflows so each maintains the proper water levels if I use the two as suggested?
