return pump size

i have two 1 1/2 inch baffles in my 50 gallon tank, they will be draining into a 30g L sump/refugium. What would be the best size recommened for a retun pump? im looking at a mag drive 5 possibly, but i think the two 1 1/2 inchbaffles should give me around 1500gph so shouldn't i get a pump that matches that, or exceeded that rating?

thanks
