Sump question

This is what I have to work with, wondering how this looks ? Figured the live rock and cheato would take care of bubbles, how high would you have the pump side ?

Like Mike said -Triple baffles are nice to have.
Assuming the water drains into the skimmer section, you should make the return section as high as you can get it (so u have more fuge volume too) & then use an ATO to control the water level in that return section. You can then place the float where you feel comfortable w/ the water level keeping in mind that it will fill up with the return pump off.
