    Hey guys... been busy with my new build for the past year. Finally I can start filling with water.
    Lots off nights awake thinking. Build the cube 800x800x750 with a center piece with my overflow return and a loop system for flow. No wave makers needed if it works. Need to build the sump now. Ill up load pic. Any designs welcome.

    What return pump will you be using?

    Unless its one big mother of a pump, it will not give you enough flow in the display. Small SunSun powerhead is 3000L/h. If you want 2*3000 outlets on your return pump, you are most likely looking at minimum 9000L/h return pump. To make up for head lost and back pressure.
