New tank (same size) but drilling...

Here I go again. Going to be drilling a
40 breeder and have a couple questions on plumbing, which will be draining into a 20 long sump:

- should I do 1 drain line or 2?
- what size if 1, what size if 2?
- what is the gph doing either way?
- braided tubing or PVC?
- what gph should I aim for on return pump?

I feel like I've been through this before with my 75 that never got set up :-/

I would run multiple 1 inch drains. Look up different drain methods and you'll find something you like.
