I see nothing wrong with the items you have gathered, I would only add that a few triple rotary 90's can make this a easy build to link together, if this was me building this loop I would get 10 of them for this build, food for thought.

Looks good to me.
Killcoil/Biocide? I agree with Toolmaker that you will want a few angle adapters to make the build smoother, though I wouldn't say more than 3-4.

Dyes, just dont. They fade over time and will clog up your loop.
If you want colour, do it through tubing and/or lighting effects.

I would go for the EK as it isnt bay mounted. Bay mounted pumps are hard to decouple and you get a lot of vibration induced noise. In terms of pumping power they are both D5's, so should be basically the same.

Ok will do am getting blue tubing anyways and was thinking off putting leds in my case. Ek seem to be an amazing make I was just making sure as I got an email from them to change it to that ek one instead
