55 Gallon Freshwater tank with sump

I am going to set up a 55 gallon tank in the upcoming months and would like to add a sump with refugium. What do you think of my plan, please advise me with what i should do to make it better. thank you
the big rectangles that are colored in black will be the acrylic dividers that i will attach using silicone to make separate compartments

125 - cichlids (severums, bolivian rams, chocolate), rainbows ( turquoise, red), loaches (angelicus, zebra, kuhli and horseface), plecos (BN, RL and clown), denison barbs, tiretrack eel, pearl gouramis, betta
90 - Congo tetras, african knife, upside down cats, spotted ctenopoma, kribensis, delhezzi bichir
2.5 - betta
