I ended up not cooling my Aquareo 5. I was going to go with the passive heat sink, but didn't want to wait for the back-order. But, the pump I went with has its own built-in control, and I'm controlling PWM fans, so the voltage regulators on the Aquaero are not being taxed at all.
As for needing two pumps, add up the restrictions of everything in the system.
Or, start with one. See if the resulting performance is something that could in fact be improved with higher flow rate.
