I run a manifold around the top of my tank with 9 outlets on it.. so you divy up 3000 x 9 outlets gets me about 300 gph out of each . see pic in the link below.

the picture is of an old manifold I made up first .. but you get the idea. bumped the diameter of it up to 1.5" piping

If I had a clue... I'd be sitting on the floor playing with it.
