I'm looking to add a 3/4" seaswirl to a closed loop with a eheim 1262. The pump is pushing 5 feet horizontally and 5 feet vertically and is rated for 900GPH but i heard it's probably more.

Anyways, the 3/4" seaswirl is rated for 850GPH...am i asking for trouble or restricted flow? should i go with 1" seaswirl?

I just looked at the price of the Seaswirl. I dont know....you can get an OM Squirt for a little less. I guess they both do a decent job, but I'm partial to the Squirt. The 3/4" version of the Seaswirl should be fine with the 1262.
