Is it possible to have 2 "outflows" in the bottom of your tank and return them directly to your thank again via a spraybar or something. If its possible, any good suggestions to camo them? Just to ad extra water movement to tank. It will not interfear with the original overflow to the sump.

Cool! Warr - you "on the ball"!!! WOW man! Thanks..... Johan - yes - this is exactly what you are looking for....
You can place the "outlets ANYWHERE you want, as long as it does not suck air.

A closed loop system works on a vacuum basis.... and have a pump that sucks the water from the tank, and pushes it back into the tank via a system of plumbing.... with x amount of outlets.... the number of outlets depends on how strong your pump is....

So its ok even when your water return it will flow up between your LFR?
Not sure what LFR is, but if it is Live Rock yes.

Remember a CLS is exactly that, closed. The water won't go to your filtration, skimmer DSB etc. This would still be handle buy your overflow and return plumbing.
