Just wondering if this would be too much for a return on a 75 gallon with 40 gallon sump?

I would put a ball valve to adjust the flow.Without it I think it may be to much.I have one on my 120, and when turned wide open it blows sand around.

i don't think you would need that kind of turn over with that....maybe just a Q1 4000, that would give it a nice amount. is your tank drill...guessing it is right?

i think a 3000 would be fine, actually. i like to have my return pump be used only for moving water to the sump, not for flow.

use either powerheads or closed loop for flow IMO
