Need help with choosing a return pump.

I am going to purchase this wet dry filter.

eBay item #7742326793

And was wandering what return pump would be needed to return the water. I am planning on putting a UV sterilizer on the return hose.

I have a 100 gal with no holes drilled and it is a fish and reef like tank.
