Newbie 100gal tank

Hi there, well I am converting my 100gal tank to salt water tank going to start it off as fish and live rock only then plan converting it to reef. I have gotten my sump protein skimmer n pumps.. I don't know how many big power heads to get n the gph on them. I also need a overflow box since it is a glass aquarium. Any ideas to something else I need.

You posted this in the wrong thread but I don't see anything your missing but I'm no expert. Ask a mod to move this to saltwater you'll get more help

No problem
Gph should be around 1000 at least for a tank that size.

For SW you'll want 20-30x gph turnover for FOWLR, 30-50x gph turnover when you have corals.
