is this enough filtration?

i have a 125gal tank and i was wondering if the wet/dry filter i have is enough? Its a oceanic it looks like its about a 25 gal fish tank, i also have a protein skimmer thats made by oceanic i dont know what model it is but i could find out if you guys need to know. Also i have a submersable pump by rio it says on it 2794 L/hr is that enough to create a curent in the tank if i use a t-joint and put an water outlet on each side of the tank

Is there anything such as enough? Give us the spec of the wet/dry filter, the skimmer spec, and what ever you can give so we can tell you what is enough. And should get like 2 pumps instead of one, 2 Maxi Jet 1200 is good.

The pump is not enough, that's about 700 gph and your looking for a minimum of 1250 for flow. You can add powerheads in the tank to supplament, but personally I would opt for a bigger pump. As for the wet dry, it sounds like it's big enough, how big is the bio chamber?
