180 Gallon Acrylic Build, Questions

Picked up a 180 Acrylic tank on Tuesday. Tank has a Coast to Coast overflow. Also picked up 3 Sea Swirls, a Skimmer, and a Sequence pump. (Pictured) Going to be running a sump (Tank is already drilled) I hope to use my old SW tank as my Sump (75gallons) I would rather use a 30 gallon I have laying around but I fear it is to small, right? Also if anybody has a link or photos of a tank with similar stuff could they post em up? Any other advice would also be appreciated.

Questions are. The tri plumbing, it goes to the Sea Swirls, and is for venting? And what else? There is a PVC pipe facing down on the LH side.
Would a 30 gallon sump work? Or go with the 75 without question..
Pictures of the plumbing of set ups similar to this?

Thank you. Basically the PVC pipe facing down goes to the sump (with a shutoff valve). And then the pump will go to the return. I only have one pump... and it is for the skimmer so basically I am short a pump? Also these other set ups seem to have caps on the top of the 3 overflow pieces. But I think I was told I need to hook it upto the Sea Swirls? Have you or anyone else in here ever delt with sea swirls?

That system also has all three PVC pipes going down to the sump individually. Mine are all hooked together and then all go down to the sump as one PVC pipe. I believe... Somehow I think the Sea Swirls "Rotating Return device" are drove at some point during this process. I could be wrong bout how the Sea Swirls run tho, and probably am.
