My last two Chromis died. So, I don't have any to treat in the QT. So now I start over. Leave my 55 gallon empty for 8 weeks. I will finish plumbing my sump for my 75 gallon build and go from there.

Odyssea makes an average product in my opinion. Definitle cheaper than most other places though. I have used their lights and my best friend uses their canister filter. neither of us have had any issues with out stuff. For what thats worth lol

There stuff is fair, What will you be using the pump for? If it's a return i'd stick with the better known pumps. Don't risk it in a critical area.

How do I calculate how much flow I will need on the return pump? I have a 75 gallon reef ready Marineland tank with 11/4" bulkheads.
I have a 40 gallon breeder for the sump.

Do you know the id of the drains The return will be based on the amount of drainage You want to match it as closely as you can. Here's a chart that will help GPM/GPH Flow based on PVC Pipe Size, ie, How much water can flow through Sch 40 Pvc Pipe Size 1/2" 3/4" 1" 1.5" 2" 2.5" 3" 4" 6"

Are you talking about the PVC above the bulkhead which is inside the tank?

The drain pipe PVC is 1 1/2 inch which narrows down to 1 inch to go inside the bulk head. The PVC pipe coming out of the bulk head underneath the tank is 1 inch.
