All Panworld pumps and Reeflo Sequence pumps make great return pumps. Determine how much flow you need and go from there. Tunzes are not return pumps, there are circulation powerheads.

I assume you will be using one inch bulkheads. So for each one inch bulkhead you usually can get away with 700 gallons to 900 gallons an hour for each bulkhead, depends how you set it up though.
