plumbing for 180gal dual overflow - need help

I'm upgrading from 90 to 180gal (planning to start an upgrade thread with pics soon!). I'm hoping to get the plumbing done for the 180 over the long weekend.

Does anyone have a plumbing layout I could use as a starting point?

The tank is drilled in the bottom, both back corners & will have a three chamber sump/fuge in the cabinet. My current 90gal plumbing works well, but it's a single overflow & I'm not sure how to properly incorporate the second overflow & the returns.

Any help would be appreciated, thanks.

You can get a T for the overflow, so you can run both in. If you don't upgrade your pump, you'll be fine.

You should have enough room under the 180 to add a refugium. ;-)

So just use the one return pump, T the line and return to both sides, then just overflow both separate? Sounds too easy, there's gotta be a trick.

Thanks for the help!
