thats the basic idea. to clearify. im looking for a return flow around 1000gph total with a head length of about 5 feet. i will make the over flow pipes out of 1" peices (since there is 2 overflows thats 1200 total return, accounting for the angles and what not it should be 1000gph and i think that plenty for a 150g XDKING OF THE GOLD BARBS RAWR!!!!
I wonder if i plant one of my tiger barbs would the demon seed grow to a full tree?
gotta love them bunnies!

I would recommend a mag-drvie 1200 for 1000 gph at 5 feet
When you calculated the flow rate for the return pump, did you also factor in flow reduction from fittings in the line ? Fit not, it could reduce you flow into the display tank by up-to a additional 200 gph depending on the fittings you have on the return lineIf you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.
