Which pump?


Recommended Posts

I want to replace the pump in my 12g nano cube. It's loud! I am not sure what to go with. Would 230gal/hour be too much? The stock one is only 106 gal/hour. And recommendations?

I think it depends on what you've got in your tank. I have an RSM130 with soft corals and just replaced one of my pumps with the Maxijet900; it works, but the total flow is quite high -- I needed to move the nozzles around to stop my corals from being battered....


In a 12G??? maybe if you have SPS -- I don't have them. but believe they need really high flow. Certainly not if you have fish-only or softies.


Just my 2-cents.
