gph overflow

  1. Reefing Equipment
    I have recently decided to set up a FOWLR 55 gallon with a 29 gallon tank converted into a sump. However I am unsure what rate of flow (GPH) I should have for the internal tank overflow, and from there what diameter plumbing I should use and what return pump size. Any thoughts/suggestions?

    I have a pump that according to the head loss calculator will be putting out about 950 - 1000 gph. So my question is, do I buy a overflow rated for 900gph and throttle the pump back (if I indeed get that much flow) or get one rated at 1000gph?

    Now that my tank has been set up for a week or so with everything running on the AC Jr, I think my tank's temperature has equalized. It is usually right around 82 in the morning before the lights come on and reaches 85-86 at night by the time the lights shut off. I have the canopy fans...

    I have Coralife Super Skimmer 125 that I'd like to trade for either a Fluval 304, Filstar XP3, or an Eheim II Pro 2026. It needs a bit of cleaning. I also have a 1200gph overflow box that I'll throw in with the skimmer if you'd like. <!-- / message -->
