How many outputs and "T"s" could I put on an Iwaki 70RLT before I lose too much flow. I have a 150 that is 72" long 18" wide 28" deep and I only have enough for this pump and my Mag 9 that I currecntly have. Should I use the Mag as a return pump or the Iwaki 70RLT. One will be used as a return and one will be used as a CLS. Please give me some ideas of what the plumbing might look like with diagrams or something.

Thanks A lot,
Josh

Should I have one outlet on each side of the tank or where should I put the outlet?

Sounds good. I will probably make the eductors and use them until I can afford an OM wavemaker. Can you use eductors after the OM wavemaker?

do not see why not. as long as the OM has the same size piping as the pump. if you are thinking of using it to oscillate between the two sides, you might want to think about putting 2 eductors on each end. that way when one side is on you are not limiting the total amount of flow in the system.
