AIO tank advice

I am currently taking a 30gal breeder and converting it to an all in one tank. What kind of return pump should I use? I have a Rio 800 with 211gph at 1ft, then a Rio 1400 with 420 gph at 1ft. Do I need a bigger pump!? How many gph should I do back?

Tank dimensions are 36x18x12

You want to think about total volume here. Consider your power heads with your return, and thinking about total turn over. Personally I'd go for 500gph
