I will be setting up a pet store. I will need a real good circulation pump for my salt and fresh water.I plan to have 12 salt and 12 fresh tanks all tied into one sump. Any ideas on pumps or bulks.

I will have a coral tank approx 4 feet by 3 feet by 14 high. I plan to have to overflows and a closed loop on it as well The intake being in the center with two returns on the side and two returns towards the front blow water to the back of the tanks. Briane said to use Dolphin or sequence pumps.

All the tanks will be hard plumped Any ideas would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Dolphin is a good return pump with low power useage. It all depends what you are planning. The one bit of 2 cents I have is having all your tanks tied together. If you get ick or redbugs, flatworms or whatever you have more of a chance to affect everything. A couple seperate systems might pay off in the long run. There is a lot of good info just look around.. Good Luck
