Hello everyone!
I am looking for opinions. i have been out of the hobby for 2 years or so. My last tank was a 150 gal and i am looking at getting a red sea reefer 170 which is about 34 gallons display.

I have the following products

3015 water level controller ( i am going to reuse)
7095 controller ( old but still functional)
7096 controller ( was used on 150 gal tank before it was sold)

6000 power head ( old as dirt but runs like a champ i got it used 10-12 years ago)

6105 power head ( runs like a champ)

i am pretty sure the power heads are to big, but want to confirm. If they are too big which ones should i choose to get? Also since I will probably be getting a apex controller and the new power heads work with it is there really a need to even use the 7095 or 7096 for me?:headwallblue:
thanks.

6000 nope
6105 nope
6095 if you can turn it down

I just downsized to a redsea reefer 170

Your larger pumps are too much.

So far I have a single 6095 using the built-in controller that the new versions come with. The 6095 is also oversized for the tank but I'm able to turn it down. If you plan to run multiple times when you're 7095 or 7096 controller will work just fine.

I use my Apex Junior for other stuff

I actually ended up getting a screaming deal on a new 60 cube with stand and sump. Not sure if that makes a difference.

I once used 2 6105s in a 60. Overkill my a mile. But bare bottom and happy sps.

I am sorry I missed this, I was on the way back from Germany when you posted. For the 60 you could use what you have, the 6105 will need to be dialed down and a smaller footprint of a 6095 would be nicer but it will work.
