Any ideas on what size return pump to use for this aquarium? I found it at another store for $209 reef ready but I don't 100% trust there opinion on what return pump to use.

I recommend reef-ready (pre-drilled) if at all possible. I have NEVER had good luck with overflows - they always seem to loose prime. Others seem to have better luck. Since I travel and may be gone for several weeks at at time, it is important that the tank not lose circulation through the sump. When I have been "on call" for a friend's tank the only time I got a call was when the overflow lost prime.
