Exclamation Overflox and pump for refuguim on 72 gallon

Hello I'm ready to work on my refugium project.. I have a 72 gallon bowfront and I'm going to set up a gallon 20 refugium.. However the part I'm confuse is the ratio between the box and pump. I know a refugium should have a slow flow rate. I was thinking of getting a CPR box 90 rated for 600gph with a drain pipe of 1 1/4, and a mag 7 return pump rated for 700gph with head loss 480 gph at 4'.
The refugium will consist of subtrate, slow flow plants , and bio balls..

Would this be enough for my tank or should I bump it up a bit ???
Thanks for ur time
