Hi,
Which model should I go with, two 6055's or two 6105's? They will be going on a 144 half circle tank (59.5" x 30" x 30") and be used with the Tunze multicontroller. These will be for added circulation in addition to a reeflo 2600 pump on a closed loop using two 1" seaswirls as returns. Thanks

I think it really depends on what type corals you intend on keeping mainly; sps or lps. In my 90gal I have two 6055's and a 6025 all blowing across the surface of the water and a vortech on one end. Mine is mainly sps with several lps. If one of my pumps gets bumped and points south my lps hate it, and let me know it quick. If its mainly sps, then you would probably benefit from the greater flow of the 6105's. Also, for me anyways, its aesthetics I like the smaller pumps.
