This is a reef-ready tank, correct? If that is the case, then a 600 gph pump with 4' of head will be fine if you don't care about the slower movement of water. Its not like it will stop pumping because of the 4', and it will only drain what is pumped into the tank. Just add another powerhead to increase flow within the DT.
