Closed loop system

Can someone explain this to me? I looked it up online and I backed off when I saw 4 holes drilled in the middle of the tank. I remember seeing a pic of spickets shooting out also. I am looking for an effective way to distribute a rather high flow rate evenly across the tank. For plumping I am thinking of using two 1.5" Durso stand pipes and two 1.5" returns with either a 2100 amp master or 3000 amp master. I just really like the comments about this pump, but suggestions are welcome. Thanks for any help, kudos for help : )

You can do a closed loop with the tank drilled or without. This is a site you may know of that explains an over the back closed loop. Look in the lower right hand corner of the page.

I am currently working on one using a Poseidon PS4 going through an Ocean Motions Super Squirt to create random flow in my new 90 gal Megaflow. Heres the link for that

Check out the waterpix section for plumbing ideas.
