    Welcome to Masa, glad you joined us. Why such a strong return pump? You can rather use a smaller return pump like a 3000lph and put flow pumps inside the display tank, like Seio, Tunze or Vortex. Reason for slower return pump is so that the skimmer and other filtration, eg carbon, DSB,etc can remove more nasties from the water when passing through the sump.
