Does your scrubber dump into the display or does the 50GPH pick up from where the scrubber is at (sump)? That MP40 does circulate a lot of water. If the scrubber is in the sump its a toss up?!? You do have a scrubber with green so it maybe enough for a couple days or so.

In d sump. Im not worried about O2 in the tank... Im worrried about that pump delivering enough nutrients to the algae in d sump to keep the levels in check.
