i think i just remembered why i wanted the mag 9.5 over the mag 7, i was going to "t" some of the return flow over to my refugium.

if it flows 800 at 4 then i was going to "t" 200 to my fuge.

as my sump is set up for the pump to be in the middle and the refugium and skimmer are on opposite sides of the sump.

one more post to get it off my mind, i could "t" over to the refugium from the line coming from the overflow. throw a couple ball valves at it and everything should work after it gets dialed in.

Would a t on the overflow slow down the gph you can get out of it?

good question, wish i knew. maybe if it where far enough down stream it wouldnt interfere with the overflow since that seems to be the biggest question on hand.
