    I'm not 100 percent sure as how much the sump needs in water how far to fill as I had my previous tank was marked off as this new one is a clearseal reefspace900 with middle weir with 3 pipes and also what is the return pump lph I have a 3000lph would that work and are their any threads for this tank with middle weir thank you for looking at my post of in had a tank for roughly 3 years but a leaking tank forced a upgrade from one cleared to another again any info would be great

    What you need to consider is how it will work in a power cut
    If you lose power it will syphon until the water level drops below the return
    You need capacity in your sump to take this without flooding

    I would use 2 smaller return pumps for redundancy and use the controllers to control the flow rate
