I'm not familiar with your sump but the other equipment sounds in order. As for the heaters check these out. Pro-Heat Titanium IC Heaters

I use Tunze Nano Streams (6025) for flow in my tank. They use very little power and provide excellent flow. You can also check out the Hydor Koralia pumps. They work very well also.

How much LR do you have in your system? Can you tell me a little more about your sump?

Welcome to AA!

Many of us run two heaters just for safety.... The rest looks fine.

This is the sump in question, I only had 1 tower on my fw setup and now I only use the bottom 2 containers which hold the return pump, skimmer and the heater, the temp sensor for the heater is in the tank The Aqua One Trickle Tower Sump Filter System The Pro Aqua JVP-3000 3000L/H are Hydor Koralia pumps copys.
