Sweet setup. Let's see more. Hey, no more blurry pictures, okay? Just take them again, and upload them to the same spot as the same filename so they look sharp.

Btw, I love your avatar - that's a stunning coral.

I was just checking to see if you were transferring any livestock or starting fresh.

As for a return pump something like a Mag 3 or 5 or equivalent, I think you want to have 3 to 5 times your display volume going through the sump minus head. Someone correct me on that.

I just bought a Mag 7 and love it. It's plumbed through a SCWD to my 29. I'm still setting up the tank so that's all i've got for flow. I'll take a pic later and show you. Tell me how you like the Tunze Nano's, I'm going to be picking two up soon.

I think a mag 7 will be too much. I am of the school of thought that a return pump is simply that, a return. It should not be used for flow. High flow through your sump will cause micro bubbles in most cases. Flow can be achieved through PH or closed loop.

I have a 140g display and 45g sump with a Mag 9.5 at a 5ft head. It has to be throttled back...

Anyway, just my 2 cents.
