    I just bought a 285 gallon tank to put in between a wall. The sump is going to be a total of about 12 feet below the return in the overflow. What size return pump would I need. Also it is set up for a closed loop system with a seperate pump, what size pump should that be. It will be a reef tank, planning on having about 300lb of live rock.

    Thanks
