First you'll have to find out the head (height from pump to highest point of flow) and the match a pump to that head height but I'd go with about 10-15x gph thru it so something like 300gph going through your return but that will differ from person to person

Is through in .25 lbs of chaeto (smallest amount I know of for sale) since it will grow and the sponges are just to trap any debris. Another means of mechanical filtration

Oh wait haha I just realized the picture your looking at I have them in the fuge normally there in the baffles... I stuck them in there cause before switching Sumps due to the leak I placed my sponges in there to collect pods for the fewest casualties since I have a mandarin

You can run one if you wanted to but currently I just toss in a carbon filled media bag once in awhile until I get a couple reactors

Yes ora usually are very good about it. I got lucky with mine which isn't ora and took straight to frozen but I still like a healthy pod population for inbetween feedings
