Hello All;

Just started up my 20g/tall with 10g sump/refuge. The out of the box Rio 180 died, tank over flowed.

Cleaning up now, Any Advise on a differnt pump company,and what size?

Also , I originally drilled a hole in the return to help stop the overflow, it didnt work that well.

Perhaps it wasn't big enuff?

Any ideas would be great,

Thanks, Max

I always plumb mine so it is as high at the overflow or close to it. I also always make my baffles several inches shorter than the top of the tank, so there is extra room
