That depends on how good a job you do siliconing in a wall there. Have you looked at this site? You might find a sump idea there that you would like more than your current design.

5'x3'x2' custom in-wall, LumenMax MH lighting, closed loop OM 4-Way, PM Bullet 3, PM 622 Ca Reactor, Apex, Tunzes, Reeflo Dart and Hammerhead.

Current Tank Info: 225gal mixed predatory reef

I would look on Melev's reef for some sump/fuge ideas as it would be much easier to just buy a glass tank and divide it with baffles and put both the sump/fuge in one. The overflow drains would drain into the fuge where it would than overflow into the sump section where you can place your skimmer and reactors.
