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
