welcome hammy

what size are your holes in the overflow and how many of them are there? OR is a excellent choice of pump IMO OR6500 (6500lph) and OR3500(3500lph)

if straight return id go 3500 if pushing to the bottom (to flush detritus out from beneath rockwork) id go 6500 the overflow holes are the important thing to establish here first.

Welcome to MASA, only use the 6500 if you are going to run a closed loop system, otherwise it will flood over.
