Btw im thinking a quiet one 4000 will suit my needs. Prolly need a little stronger but it will do a decent job. And give me peice of mind it wont be more flow then my drains will allow.

Also need a light. Getting a 6 x 54 watt t5 fixture. And a hob octopus skimmer. Then down the road will be adding 6 led strips( forget who makes them at the moment) to add shimmer and coral color. And of course my clean up crew from reef cleaners. Got that certificate from them.

If you use that with say...
Ista Vortex Water Flow Accelerators MPT
in the 1" size you will get a fair amount of flow

it screws into 1" PVC threaded. or 3/4" or 1/2" depending on your size. I am splitting 1 pump into 2 3/4" flow accelerators.

It works well with a lineloc system. I am running the sicce syncra 5 (1321 gph) on my 120 (2 overflows) with no problem. I personally would rather have too much pump than not enough depending on how your plumbing is set up you might want to look at the 6000. with the 4000 you are only looking at 650 gph at a 5 foot head height. plus every 90 your plumbing has is the same as another foot of head height. one tee and one elbow you will be looking at about 500 gph with the 4000 and 800 gph with the 6000. 2 overflows with 1" drains will flow about 1200 gph (600 per).

6000 it is then. About the only thing that scares me is flooding lol. But if im going to lose that much then the6000 will work. I think ill endup with 2 45's and 2 90's and split once it hits the water. With about 4 feet of travel
