Rio, Mag, or Quiet One?


Recommended Posts

Hey guys and gals! I am looking to replace my mj1200 with a stronger pump because the flow is really low coming back into my tank from the chiller. Here's the setup:


just the nanocube tank sans hood not drilled

1/10 hp AquaEuro chiller 22.5 inches below the tank, works marvelously, tank is never below 78 or above 80


I am looking at the Rio 1700+ or 2100+, the Mag 7, or the Quiet One #3000. I am just wondering what you guys and gals would choose or recommendations.


Right now I am leaning more towards the Mag 7 because it already has the 1/2 inch port on it with the 700 gph flow. I figure after head loss the actual flow would be in the neighbor hood of 500 gph, which is perfect for the chiller and the tank.


thanks for any info

mag or quiet one both make great pumps. I hve both and love them. The mags tend to work better in an application where backpressure is a problem. Quietones will heat up a 5 gallon bucket to 80-82 degrees in a 24 hour period. The quiet ones can be plumbed externally and that will eliminate the heat issue.
