Ok my design is to get pristine water clarity, The filter will be a sump will minimal biological filtration, the overflows will drain through ejection hose(ejection hose is very soft and its natural state is collapsed, this should remove any cascading effect to keep essential CO2 in the water colum hopefully) into filter socks dual stage, 200 and 50 micron socks nested inside eachother. Then through some baffles with ceramic rings, over heaters, into pump, through a DE pool filter and then a UV filter (that will remain off unless their is a problem in the tank) and back into the tank. I might even remove the ceramic rings all together and just add buffer media in there depending on what I want/need for the tank. In the over flows I'll place some... raparium plants?? Don't know what you call it when its half in half out, like a calla Lilly and stuff perhaps, not sure on that yet.
