Use the mag12 if you want but skip the SCWD. Even on my mag18, I don't like the way my 3/4 SCWD works on it. Too restrictive.

I've been using a 3/4" with a Mag 9 on my 55 as a return. It definitely reduce the flow, but that hasn't been a necessarily a bag thing as it's slowed the flow through my sump a little.

I was planning to the SCWD in a closed loop on my 110 with a Mag 12. I'm not sure how well it'll work as the more water going through it the faster it switches. So it may end up being to rough.

But I've been happy with my SCWD so far, as long as you into it realizing your going to have restricted flow and plan for it.
