    You sure your overflow can handle that?

    1000 it's a lot of flow for the 40 return
    I may have an Eheim 1262 ~900 and still overkill and a 1260 ~600gph
    For sure couple Tunze Silence ~500gph

    LMK if they are of your interest.

    I'm using Eheim 1260 (640gph) for my 40g breeder. 3/4" return and 1" drain.

    But then again, I have a Turbo-Sea 1090 gph for my 120g with single 1" drain too.
