No it's not its the water that makes the noise. There's a dorso set up you can do to stop the noise. If I find the link will send it to you.

How big of a sump would you recommend? What size skimmers? Needing a little help planning the plumbing. As far as LEDs, what kind and how many would you recommend to grow most corals?

Nice! Congratulations on the tank! Good luck with your tank and feel free to post. I'm fairly new but I'm determined. Any beginning advice can help.

Is a 55 gallon sump big enough for a 210 gallon tank?

What's good bro was out with my big boy. 55 or 75 is good but make sure it has a refugium section. As for skimmer reef octopus is good I use the 1000sss but you will need seething rated higher. Bubble magus is good also I had one before the only problem was that the impeller would always break but it was a good skimmer had the nac6.

Got you bro.
To make the over flow silent :www.dursostandpipes.com.
Skimmer:
Reefoctopusskimmers.com
Bubble-magus.com
As for the LEDs I think I gave you the link already ai sol. If you want I can try and find the LEDs for less for you. How much you want to spend on the LEDs ai's new are not cheap. Found mine for 525$ still under warranty and that was a very lucky find.

Not saying those LEDs are not good I don't know. But I would go with something better.

By better do you mean more expensive? Not sure I would pay more for something that does the same job as the less expensive one.
