New project! Help appreciated.

I'm looking into buying a Marineland Deep Dimensions 250 Gallon (36"x60"x27") for a new home for my quickly growing fishes. Im 99.9% sure i'll be getting the tank, but I'm not very familiar with plumbing a tank of this size. I need help figuring out a proper filtration system. I have a 55gallon that is sitting empty that i can use as a sump, and I'm fairly handy, but I've never built one before. I'm not really putting a budget on this project yet though, so any ideas are appreciated. I mostly need tips on plumbing, and sump ideas for a 250. Would a single Proflex series 4 do the job?

Im in SW ontario, if anyone wants to help me out on this project?

Why not get the 300 dd? You should be able to use to 55 gallon for it. There is alot of the Internet for DIY sumps.

At the store I'm looking to buy from the 300DD is currently unavailable, but there is a sale on the other sizes, otherwise I would obviously want the 300DD.

Make a sump out of the 55g. Look at joeys website you will find how easy it is to make a nice sump. Did you get the tank drilled for overflows?

Yes, I got it drilled w/ corner-flo's. Should I use one large water pump or two small ones? One per return output?

I'm thinking this would be best in case one fails.
