All you really need is a 700 gph overflow.
As for the power heads, I would go with at least the 1400's.
For the film on the water surface, increase the flow at the surface a bit.

They are a simple design that everyone uses. A common J tube style siphon overflow. It's not earth shattering technology. I happen to like the CPR overflows myself.

CPR overflows are great and a good price. If you go that route get the deluxe version with the pump and the cover.

You can put 100 in there if you have food for them. Just be warned that they like to steal the food out of corals' mouths. they can be annoying if you like spot feeding corals and anemones.

Agreed! We're getting annoyed with our single Peppermint shrimp doing that. I'm always chasing it off with puffs from the feeder. It is amazing how it can steal stuff out of corals but not hurt them though.

Sorry to burst your bubble guys. But there's an article out on cleaner shrimp in aquarium magazine that says whenever you get more then 2 cleaner shrimp they will kill each other off, when one of them goes to molt. And I have come to notice this as well, several times I have had more then 2 of them and a month or 2 later there is only 2 of them left. Always wondered why. Then I came across that article like 2 months ago I think. Was tropical fish magazine
