i think i have it figured out the pipe is where i hook up the pump i assume the pump has to be in tank the two bio boxes flow underneath past the skimmer to the pipe the pipe is where i hook up the intake for the return pump if that makes sense

now that i have figgured that out any pump sugestions and do you think the pump has to be in tank or not?

A submersible pump should be placed in the last chamber,plumbed with some flex tubing.Is there a fixed return?You can also hide your heater in that chamber.
