View Full Version : Best External pump

03/29/2007, 03:29 PM
Hey guys, so I am in a delemma (SP) we have our new stand setup and we are now setting up our fish room. I really dont want to upgrade the pump when we get our 300 gallon tank. And at the moment I have a 90 gallon tank reef, and we are going to setup two 60 gallon or so frag tanks. All the water will be travling max 10' and minimum 4' to the fish room. Im looking for one external pump that will be able to deliver water to all three tanks and be able to withstand the 16' at max travel to the farthest frag tank.

Opinions on which external pump I should get.

I like Pan Worlds and ReefFlos... in this case, either should do... just depends on how much water flow you need.

Is there any place that compares the pumps and such?

There is Reef Central's Head-Loss Calculator and Equipment Reviews section, but I would assume you have looked at those already if you are posting here. Marine Depot has some good info on their site to compliment the products... wattage, head loss curves, etc. Other than that, you can go to the ReefFlo forum to get their suggestions, and then call Marine Depot.
