    Hi I have a 180gallon fish only tank that has a canister filter. I was going to upgrade to a 40 gallon sump is there any recommended hang on back overflows and return pumps? Whats the best flow rate or gallon per hour for each of them?

    I am running a jebao dc-8000 (it is a DC pump) return pump on my 75 and I am running the risk of overflowing the tank if power goes off and it goes to highest setting after it resets. Was thinking of undervolting the pump like running it at 18v instead of 24v (using variable volt adapter) to...
