Nope!!! its pumping water in a container as we speak!! already made about 15-20gallons

and no to the circulation pumps, might not need em since both of my returns have 2 flexible nozzles to direct flow(so they act as powerheads, 4 all together)

You return pump probably won't be enough flow though. So you'll want 2700gph minimum and up to 4500+gph... I don't think your pump is up to that lol

Yep 30-50x turnover for corals is the general rule of thumb. Two good size koralias or something should be perfect in combination with your returns.

Koralia makes a Wavemaker which is pretty cheap and comes in different sizes (number of outlets).
