Help have I done to much? Plenum and filter question

okay heres the deal. I have a 65 acrylic tank and a 25 gallon sump tank for a total of 90 gallons. I have a wet/dry system with a return of 1000 gph. I also have a coral life 65 protien skimmer and a Fluval 305 canister filter with no media(ie carbon, ammo chips) just filter pads. My question is this When I set up my tank I put a 1'' plenum in. In the long run is this going to be bad. everything I read says no skimmers with plenums etc.

Im keeping all my filtration but do I need to worry about the water below the plenum escaping into the tank water ans causing mass chaos.
