To be honest not sure it came with a 120g tank set up and the seller didn't know to much but if I would take my best guess it should be the 1000gph to 1200gph eshopp over flow

Gotcha... yeah you might be able to match it by teeth or dimensions.

I really like the Sicce Silent pumps. They are quality, in expensive and versatile.

There's also another pump company that I've been wanting try to called Jebao...
They make these cool little pumps that convert AC to DC and are very low wattage and have digital controllers that allow you to dial in the right gph for your setup. They can be ran internal or external. Might be something to check out. They are not that expensive either.

Looks like the 1000 gph model to me, although they usually have two siphon tubes running over the top of the box. Maybe one of the tubes is missing?

As for pumps, I use an Eheim on my tank and am very happy with it. Very quiet, efficient, and not too expensive. I have had good luck with Quiet One pumps in the past and Mag Drive pumps work well, although they are loud and tend to generate a lot of heat.

The sump looks like it was set up for saltwater. Easiest would be to throw some filter socks in for mechanical filtration, and then some type of biomedia (bio-balls or lava rock). Even better would be a drip tray with filter pads over the biomedia.
