You can turn it way down and don't forget the head pressure will take a bit of that away as well. I use the DCS4000, 8000 and 12000 pumps on my tanks. The 3000 does the 57 and 50 cubes quite well. If you're going to run a reactor of some sort you'll lose a little there too. All of mine are dead quiet, they get noisy when they need to be cleaned. Same with the CoralBox skimmers, love them as well.

 

I checked Amazon, tomorrow is payday.  

 

Jebao DCS3000 80.41
Jebao DCT4000 71.32  It said this one will be replacing the DCS3000. so should I just get this one?  it's only 12 g in the system probably, not like it's going to take a lot to move the water.

Will it fit in the sump that is the question..........

 

They do make a smaller one I think if you are not wanting a ton of flow. I think its a 2000 or 1800 not sure though.

It better.  The 5.5 g rectangular tank is all that fits below in the stand and it is 16 x 8.  The DCS 3000 is  7 x 8.5.  I was only thinking to put one divider which was to separate off that pump but I don't believe I have room to do that.    SO, it has to be a no for DCS3000 & up- takes up too much room.  I have to have my rock in there and at least carbon.

 

I just found a Jebao WP1500 which is 400GPH--  $21.38 & free shipping from Jebao.

 

https://www.amazon.c...sible+pump&th=1

 

  • DIMENSIONS: 3.5" x 2.25" x 4.5" in another spot it says 4x4x4, whichever it will still fit better
  • 25 Watts VOLTS: 110-120V 60Hz
  • MAX FLOW RATE: 400gph
  • H-MAX:8.2 Ft
  • Included 3 size hose adapters 1/2", 3/4" & 1"; 6 foot long power cord

 

Would this work?   From Sump to top of tank overflow it's only a touch over 3 ft.

Well says max 8.2 so will probably lose a little flow but may work.

 

I know you are looking for a inexpensive pump but a sicce 2.0 may be what you are after.

I heard Sicce are quiet.  But it's more about size.  I need to fit rock in there and the pump.  The Sicce is 8 x 3 x 5 inches and the tank is 16 x 8.  It'll take up half the space!  No room for sock, ok, then just media, rock, pump.  See, running out of space and filtration is a must.

So move it, slide a credit card under & give it a harder push and it'll give.  Mine were fine, then they grew more and half of it ended up bending up along the glass.  I don't mind really.

tried that recently.  didn't budge =(

Next strongest is Jebao WP-2000 Submersible, Hydroponics, Aquaponics, Fountain Pump 530gph, 45w.

 

  • DIMENSIONS: 4.0" x 2.5" x 6.0".  That's the biggest regarding space I think I can go.

tried that recently.  didn't budge =(

 

Just try pushing harder w/ that driver's license or credit card.  I was surprised at the suction they have.

Where do you get those dimensions from?

 

Its only 5x3 or so. I have one in the back of my nuvo 30 and the chamber is only 4" deep and it fits perfect.

Well, that size is doable.  Weird how off Amazon was on the size.  With that size it's a winner.  And then I can still buy a 3/4" ball joint for it for some regulation.    Thanks Spectra!    And this is why I loooove this site.  Someone is always willing to help you with something.  

 

I hope to get the rest of the plumbing items this Sun.

Thanks for helping enforce what I'm doing now.  Makes me feel good about it being quiet.  This will be such a cool little tank.  I can't wait.

 

I had a girl come over after work as she had interest in my grandis paly.  We have 80 people in our local club.  Not one person bit when I said I had 6 palys, each $20, I fed them once since cutting in Dec and they each have a head already.  I'm like, WTH is wrong with this local club, they want it completely free!.  Well, this girl drove from Cherokee in TN which is more than what I'd considered local to here to buy one for herself and one for a friend.  So, I made 40 bucks to go towards the pump.  Yey!!!  And she became more interested in rock flowers when she saw the babies.

 

 

 

Probably the shipped (box) size that they display. 

 

That's probably it.  Thanks.

 

Oh, and my corky finger came in.  They said 3", it's 5" so I'm very excited and paying $25.98 including shipping was a great deal.  Can't wait to see the fluffiness.  With as much as I feed it should be happy.

 

20170120_192249_zpsdtifzpvj.jpg

I'm so in love with this rock flower.  Hope it's a great parent.

 

20170120_192636_zps0kcm10ht.jpg

 

And more pics of old babies.  Like time came & went & the mamas didn't yet spawn from the Dec 4 male spawning.  I'm like C'MON!!!

 

20170120_192941_zpsmysdkrx9.jpg

 

Looks like we have some twins here.
