setups usually go pump from main tank to sump,bubble trap or somthing into a filter media then into a colinating place where u put ur pods n other nitirifying stuff, then u put the skimmer then u put the pump from the skimmer to the main tank so the water coming out has been treated by everything, doesnt it?thats wat ive heard, dont quote me :)

Its the other way around pump from sump to main tank. Gravity works to bring the water to the sump.

No matter what pump you get the over flow will only handle what the pump has to give. I would use something with a 1200gal/hr flow rate or more.
