That's where I'm getting confused. I was told you want to move the volume of your tank around 10x so I went with the 3000 overflow kit which works best at around 1200 gph
, so I'm looking for a pump that will match that. Should I have gone with a smaller overflow kit that does less gph
and made up the difference with powerheads in the display tank?

The 5000 will only have 1041gph after 5' of head loss
Hmm, I'm thinking it'd be after head loss. You liked the 6000?

I was looking at the mag drives and thinking of maybe using two of the 9.5's as opposed to one larger one.
