If I do end up moving the tank, I will drain it. I may just stick with the 10 gallon under the stand since it already fits in place nice. I was looking at this overflow unit. It's rated for up to 75 gallons and I can save a couple bucks compared to the one I posted earlier which was the eshopps pf-800. This is the pf-300

Amazon.com: Eshopps PF-300 Overflow Box - Up to 75 gallons - 6 in. x 3 in. x 10 in.: Pet Supplies

This will save me a couple bucks on the return pump as well since I wouldn't think i'd be able to go with a 700gph? I am unsure of the difference. it doesnt say...

Can anyone please chime in on this overflow system and return pump that I posted up earlier. I'd like to get this done this weekend and not sure of 100% parts etc I need to have. Thanks.

The return pump controls the flow in the over flow box. You will probably have to dail the pump down for the overflow to keep up . Check out Melevs reef sumps on google they provide info on the hows and whys and little tips to.

Really up to you. But the more water filtration and movement is always better. I went cheaper before and 2 months later buying what I wanted to at first arghhhh. Check out that site it will really help you. A 55 with the 300 will turn over about 5 times a hour the 800 will be like 15 times a hour.
