a coralife turbo twist 18 or 36 watt UV would work nicely!

you could run it outside your sump. It is an external UV so it can be mounted anywhere really. Just pump the water in and have it come out into the sump. Mounting is pretty flexible. I have one that just lays on the floor behind the tank.

I need a punp with it? If so, which to you suggest.
Could I use it between my return pump from my sump and my SCWD?

if you go with the 36 watt go with a rio 1100 or a mag 7. You could also run it between the return pump as long as it is under 900GPH.

For the 18 watt go with a mag 5. You are limited to about 500 GPH with this UV

No, its way over that. Hope I can fit another pump in my sump.
I have a pondmaster as a spare, but its 950 GPH.
I'll decide and order in the AM.
Thanks!!

if you got the 36 watt the 950 would probably be okay. I do not think an extra 50GPH would be detrimental.
