Return pumps?

Hi all, just wondering what everyone is using as a return pump from the sump? Pumping height would be 1600 from bottom of sump. Cant seem to find alot on Ebay just putting in return pumps. Looking at roughly 4000l/ph. Cheers

I have a pump that pumps 750gph in my sump it has a hob overflow 1 1/4 and return is 3/4 on my 90g
I find it still to be sluggish, so I plan on going to 2 inch overflow with a 1 inch return with a pump that runs 1500gph in near future
It's a matter of dialing it in right
