Turf algae Filter

If you use a turf algae filter in the sump fed off the overflow ,what size of return pump would be needed for a 125 gal tank? Thanks Kitch

I don't think it matters if you have a turf algae filter or not I would use the sicce silent 5 for a 125.

before you go to the trouble of setting up a turf filter I would check out the biopellet reactors. they work GREAT.
