Setting up can vary widely.
I wanted a refugium so I dedicated 1/4 of a 4' tank to it & left the rest open.
I have dealt with a very small return pump section & swore never again.
Glass baffles should be 1/8" smaller than the inside of the width & 1/4" thick.
Many suggest an under - over for baffles to help with bubble elimination.
A search for building a sump should get you plenty of suggestions with pics or diagrams.

250 gallon mixed reef, Vertex Illumina LED, RD 3 Speedy 80 Watt, DAS EX-3 Skimmer, MTC mini cal, 2-3/4" Sea Swirls, Aquacontroller & 4 Tunze pumps.
