ok.. I will try that.. though I have read from articles that putting valve and not leaving it all the way open is a bad idea, but I guess that its my last solution, so ima give it a shot.. oh and some glue!

You could put a T and a valve on the return line. Opening the valve would reduce the flow into the tank by returning it back to the sump.

Or if your pump is just a little too much you could add a SCWD Reef Current Wave Maker to reduce some of the flow.

IME I had a 950 GPH pump with two overflows and still used a valve on the pump output. Never on the input. On the output it is the same as more head height. 600 GPH may be ok.
