use a big bulkhead and connect the 2 10 gallons. use one as a sump with a skimmer and the other as a refugium. you would prob be better off with a 20 long but this could work. do you know what skimmer your getting? read reviews online as some are garbage and others golden. have you read the thread "understanding sumps"
