I am busy planning a new setup, I plan on eventually running 2 skimmers, both with the same rating (each bigger than total volume), a recirculating and an in-sump (First the in sump, then later adding the recirculating). Now for the question, what is the best way to feed the recirculating skimmer, directly from an overflow or from the sump, busy thinking about my sump design?

At the moment I'm considering either the Reef Octopus DNW-200 or OCTX-200-EXT, any other recommendations?

Now the question would be what size pump?

I agree, feed the external skimmer with a pump.
