Hey guy i have a reeflo yellowtail as my return pump on my 200 gallon system. All the equipment is ran in the basement except for my display tank which is a 120 is located 2 floors directly above. The height from where my pump is to the top of the tank is about 24'. My questIon is i was looking for a pump mainly DC that was more energy efficient than the reeflo that runs around 350watts. Ive been searching online but have not had much luck. Does anyone know of anything that would work?

That's a lot of height and I don't think ant of the dc pumps can do that high of head.

Abyzz or Royal Exclusive Red Dragon's are the only 2 that MIGHT be able to do it.
Check there.

I saw the abyzz but kind of hard to justify spending the $1700. Just looked at the RD but idk if it offers enough head height for what i need. Starting to think my only option is to stick with the reeflo unfortunately.
