    I have a 75 gallon tank with a built in overflow on the left hand side, the LFS ordered me a 90 GPH pump and I am having to choke it down quit a bit to stop the overflow gurgling(which it still does randomly) and now the pump is humming loudly. What size pump should I use or do they make a quite...

    Hi all. I would like to run a pump from my holding tank (newly filtered water) to my two aquariums so that I can avoid the 5-gallon bucket routine. Since there are two tanks, I would envision a hose with submersible pump rather than a fixed pipe design. Has anyone done this before or have any...

    Hello again! I learned with the 180 that when it comes to flow pumps you save money by just buying the good ones, also I want to be able to control them with my Apex. I have 2 choices that I know are good. 1. The Tunze, I had a pair of the 6100's and loved them, but gave them away to a good...

    Hey guys. I am new to The Reef Tank as well as reefing in general. I have kept a small nano cube as a fish on with rock for quite some time. I have finally started to upgrade to a 120 gallon tank. The measurements for the tank will be 48"x24"x24". It has yet to be set up because I am slowly...

    Been looking at powerheads... Internet says I need like 3000 gph for a 55 softy and Lps, I'm not set on any particular fish, so I can plan them around the equipment. Is that on top of my 350 gph overflow? Jebaos recommended all around, maybe a WP on each end, and 2 smaller cheaps? or maybe...

    Hi, Does this look ok to overflow a 55g ~4feet above the sump? http://www.amazon.com/Eheim-1000-Compact-Pump/dp/B001EUE8XK/ref=sr_1_11?ie=UTF8&qid=1417043407&sr=8-11&keywords=Eheim+pump The head loss calculator I found required entering a model # but didn't have this one, also this company...

    So besides the Tzune and Ecotech are there any other pumps that you can controll the amount of water that is pushed? I have a reef angel plus controller and it seems like a waste to purchase the Tzune and Ecotechs when I don't need their built in controller to controll them. I'm just looking...

    Hey guys. I recently purchased a used 120g oceanic rr tank. I am upgrading from a 55g FOWLR tank with a hang on the back protein skimmer and canister filter. The 55g is very basic and I did not want to pump more money into the system when it lacks many things I am looking for (pre drilled...

    Currently have a 55g DT, no sump. Getting a 75g DT that is drilled, and I plan to use my existing 55g tank as the sump. I will be custom building the stand, but could use some tips from experienced reefers on the sump design. Here's the google sketchup, exact measurements to scale: The skimmer...

    I picked up a brand new Red Sea Berlin protein skimmer (25-250g) today for a good price (although it looks old), and it's an air-injected venturi style skimmer that requires a pump, not included. I'm not sure what type of pump I need. Do I need a venturi pump or does the protein skimmer, being...

    A friend of mine dropped off his mag 12 return pump at my house as he is downsizing his system. The pump was in use at his house yesterday. My question is, I'm not ready to set it up yet as I'm still doing the fish room build,(Independence Tank). Should I rinse it in freshwater so the salt...

    I currently have a 40B tank and I am looking at adding a vortech mp10w ES to the system, I am wondering how many of these pumps you all think I should get. I know they are kinda pricey, but what isn't in this hobby! I am hoping one will be fine for now and when I have enough money saved up I...
