If a snail or something gets stuck in there the tank will overflow, with an inch and a half even if the pipe gets blocked a little it will be ok, also it will run alot quieter

actually its not that loud I put a pipe about a inch or two into the sump below the water line that quiet it a lot the return line is the loudest thing I have the outlet close to the surface.I didnt put the check valve yet ill do that this weekend when I hook up the chiller.Im running out of room in the cabinet I might have to hang the phos reactor on the wall or on the side if the cabinet,all the stores I go dont have reactors I can look at I just wanna see it in person before i but it so I know its gonna fit.I just gotta get a controller and the wires will be cleaned up Ill mount a board on the wall and put all the control pannels on it.Ill see if I can make the 1 1/2 fit its pretty tight.The overflow has covers and a screen pad thing but If I can make it fit I rather be on the safe side.

How is your surface agitation? I set my returns up at the surface to increase it and also so in the event of a power outage or a feed schedule it doesn't drain back so much. Although it looks about in line with your overflow and I have a weir setup.
