Use three Rio Pumps Now??

I have three Rio pumps 2100 and 2 2500.
The 2100 is 600 GPH and the 2500 is 748 GPH.

Could I use these now and save some money.

What happens if the tank gets to much water. Not sure if I need all three or just two.

Please help
Brian

What type of tank, what size, what size sump, etc? Depending on the size of the tank and sump that might either be enough or it might be way too much, can't tell.

90 gallon freshwater? How big is the sump? What fish are you going to keep?

Depending on things you can probably do most freshwater with just one of the pumps. Probably the 2100.
