Which Return Pump?

I am setting up a 90 gallon reef ready tank with this ADHI 30 gallon sump/refugium (ADHI Model 30 Refugium - FREE GROUND SHIPPING!* :: ADHI :: Sumps :: Champion Lighting & Supply). From what I have heard, the overflow gph rate on the reef ready tank is right at 700 or so.

With that, I have two options for return pumps (as I have both already), either an internal mag drive 9.5, or an external blueline aqua 30x pump. For gph they are pretty similar. What would you recommend I use? This is my first sump so any information is helpful.

Also, I have two possible skimmers to use. One is an Aquac remora, and the second is a Reef Octopus NWB-110. My inclination is to sell both and get one that is bigger. What do you recommend?
