I have a mj1200 on it atm and was wondering if a larger pump would be better?

I had a mag 5 on my remora pro and got good results with it.

Might try a mag 3

I ran a mag 7 and a Rio 2100 on my Remora Pro. Both those pumps were huge upgrades from the suggested Mag 3. Noticed a little more skimmate but nothing worth going out to buy a new pump for. My suggestion is if you are really looking for more performance save the money for a new skimmer.. A bigger pump will not cut it..
