    I am looking on Ebay for an overflow box for my 20g . Can anyone give me an idea what gal per hour I would need to flow into the sump? And what would be a sufficient flow for a return pump...? Thanks:wavey:

    (Ignore my signature, it's way out of date...) I have a 220gal tank with two submersible pumps returning from the sump. The sump is a CPR unit with a separate refugium tank. This has been setup for about 5 years with crystal clear water and no micro bubbles at all. Regular monthly...

    The subject of this thread is a Genx 4100 4-5 months old powering my RS180. I took it offline for routine maintenance this evening and this is what I found. How is anything in my tank surviving?? I thought rust was a serious issue, especially of this magnitude. When I lifted the pump out...

    I really like my new set up with a sump and skimmer. But there's a lot of movement in the sump, and the skimmer creates a lot of splash, as you can see by the water drops on the glass. The tank is on hardwood floor, and of course, I forgot to put plastic underneath the stand. :rolleyes: So...

    Hi Boys and Girls, I'm planning a 75g reef with softies, perhaps a few LPS, and very few fish. My question is: What is the most cost effective pump for a CLS in the 1200g range? I'm torn between the submersibles and the externals. The submersibles are obviously less expensive per gph, but...

    I know the Velocity T-3 is a good choice but any others or submersible ones? Looking for an 700-1000gph range. This will be a sump return. Also anyone have a place to get Velocity pumps. I can't seem to find them. Also any links to pre made educators that one can buy! Thanks
  16. Water movement (pumps & wavemakers)
    Hi, 1) Is your 6500 connected with soft to hard pipe ? 2) Have you got it stood on anything or is it just on the suction cups on the sump floor ? 3) Is your 6500 silent or noisey ? I have a new one and its real noisey. Thanks Dave
