    I would get the 1500 so you don't have to dial back your return pump.

    well the pump only does around 715gph and is going to 2 tanks. so each tank will only get about 350gph.... so why would i get a 1500?

    To prevent the overflow from backing up and creating a flushing sound. Plus it will allow expansion.
