    So, when I purchased my aquarium it came with a mag5 pump for the return. I've noticed that the diatoms seem to be building up at the surface of the water and I think this is caused by there not being enough turnover inside the tank. I pulled this chart online that shows the flow rate at various...

    I'm going to use an eshopps 300 as an overflow and was wondering if I bought a mag 5 for my return and used about 4-5 ft of return line and if needed, I might have to constrict flow up to 150-100gph. How much can a mag drive possible handle?

    I bought a used magdrive from a fellow reefer here. For some reason it sticks when you first plug it in and I have to manually spin it to get it going. Once I spin it..it's fine. But if I unplug it or if the power goes out I have the same problem. I've read where this was a common problem across...
