Quiet One PRO 3000 ( 758 GPH) - Lifegard
Lifegard Quiet One Pumps have been used by reefers for years for silent reliable water movement. Typically employed as a return pump, Lifegard pumps can be used for almost any application where water needs to be moved continuously.

The general rule of thumb is to achieve about 5-10x turnover of the display volume through the sump each hour, so this would be the adjusted flow after head pressure and plumbing restrictions. It's not absolutely required to get 10x per hour if you have good water movement in the display from powerheads, and many people will sit at the lower end of the spectrum around 5x per hour or even slightly less. To avoid losing too much power/flow from plumbing, use at least the same size plumbing as the output, or even go up a size, and avoid overly-complicated plumbing setups which reduce flow even further. A basic and direct plumbing scheme from pump to display is the most efficient.
For a return pump you will typically need 10X your system volume. With a 125 gallon tank you will want at least 1250 GPH flow. stepping up to larger pump is beneficial in that it will account for the drop in head height from pushing the water up.
