You shouldn't count the flow of your return pump in with the flow in your DT. People have tried using their return pumps as sole means of flow and it ended up in disasters. You should just point it up for surface agitiation.

90 gallon tank, what wavemakers?

They are buying ph it was a statement saying with two good ph and a return pump you should be fine. Don't read into it so much to pick apart and add confusion..

I ended up going with a pair of wp25s. I think that will work very nicely for my tank. Thanks for the help

There isn't any "added" confusion in my statement. When you say "and your return pump" it makes it look as if you are using your return pump for flow in the DT, which I think you shouldn't. With this post once again you inferred that the return pump is supposed to be used for flow. I was simply saying that you shouldn't count your return in as a you over all flow. Filtration is separate from Powerheads. I find it's best to point it towards the surface so you don't need a powerhead for agitation.
