Thanks for the replies, everyone. As far as using a different pump if I split the return from the sump pump to the fuge and back, I've got a 700 gph mag pump I could use. Still concerned that it would be 'too much'. How about using the 700 pgm as the return pump, splitting it to the fuge (which drains back to the sump), and then split the actual return to the tank into two returns. If I do that should I just go with 1 Maxi-Jet 1200, maybe directing it's flow along the back bottom of the tank, behind the rock wall? Or should I keep both Maxi-Jets in?

you could also keep both maxi-jets in there and maybe add a Hydor wave do-dad on to one or both PH's

i used a quiet one 3000 at about 30" of head. approx 650 GPH. this was into a SCWD with a Y on both sides. one at the surface one pointed more down. plus and a small aqua clear ( 301 i think ) 100GPH power head blowing at sand level across the back of the tank, a maxijet 400, and CPR with the rio pump HOB refugium that produce some flow back into the tank. i remeber doing the math and i had more than 20x. so i think you would be fine. placement of the flow would be more important than actual GPH. here is a pic of our 29g reef before i transfered to a 75g
