Wondering if anyone here has a spare return pump I can buy, or one I can borrow until I can get one sent from the states. Not too picky as I am not using for flow really, just to cycle water to a sump so it can be skimmed.

Thanks

ive got a sedra 900 gph pump you can borrow till you get your replacement. I just use it to pump water around for water changes.

Thank you so much. You guys rock!

Don't know about you, but the equipment procurement is the only downside to the reefing here. It is so hard to find a big tank and everything else has to be shipped. I would have been better prepared, but the movers really gave me the shaft. I was allowed 4000 pounds and they told me I was at my limit with what I already had for them to pack. So, I had to cut and of course, aquarium stuff had to go or I would have never heard the end of it. It turns out I only brought just shy of 2500 pounds. They totally hosed me.

Anyway, thanks again for all the help and offers.

I actually went over my allowed weight limit by 1000lbs but TMO did not harass me about it. The extra 1000lbs was my tank and equipment!

Well that is awesome. I was worried because there was a LT that came from Bahrain to Virginia and he went over and was being hit for $5K for the shipping charges. I really wanted to avoid such a hassle. I hear they are a little kinder here....both coming and going.....but I did not possess that knowledge beforehand. Wish I had brought a tank now. I could have brought a 100 gallon custom acrylic tank and stand and still been under my limit.
