All of what you listed sounds exactly like what I have on my 55 for my sump. On mine, I don't have anything to hold the filter socks in place and just use cheap panty hose. In terms of your reactor, I tried to plumb mine into things and just couldn't get it to work correctly, I would suggest just hooking it up to its own seperate pump with a ball valve so you can get the flow just how you want it through the reactor.

A mag 7 would be fine IMO less power usage and won't have to adjust the flow. I run a mag7 and eshopp 800 overflow very happy with it!
