Question need help choosing a return pump

I have a 20gal. long with just live rock (25-30lbs) and eshopps sk-100 hang on back skimmer. About 3-4 feet of head height and diy 10gal sump with cpr 50 overflow with aqualifter pump rated at 300gph. What would be a good return pump for this setup. It is a reef build so I will have corals. I've been looking at the eheim 2000 compact rated at 267-528gph. Is this pump to much pump to keep up with the 300gph overflow. Thanks in advance for any help with this. First time sump user and just a little confused.

Do I have this posted in the right place? A pump is considered hardware I think.

I believe you'll be happy with the eheim pump. I believe that the eheim 2000 is more then enough for your return. you could always do the 3000 and T it off if it's to much flow. Which allows you to use that for feature additions like reactor ,chiller and etc.

That is kind of what I was thinking because I do plan on using a gfo reactor. Thanks much.
