Silver killcoil, kills all the algae in your loops, and you'll need the liquid too, with a anti corrosive.

EDIT: you'll need clamps or something to secure the tubing on the barbs too.

Is there a particular reason why you are using 2 pumps? You really only need one but some people add another for backup.

Dual pumps on such a short loop might be overkill....gonna flow like a monsoon. Then again, with them set up in series (redundant) you'll have peace of mind in case one pump fails.
