Syncra 1.5 for 20G?

Recommended Posts


I'm setting up an Innovative Marine 20G (not the fusion).  I'm going to run it with a 10G sump.  Would a Sicce Syncra 1.5 be overkill, with about 220GPH at a 3ft head?  I'm factoring in some loss at the two elbows for the dual return outlets into the tank, so I'm guessing each outlet into the tank would pass about 110 GPH.  Does this setup sound reasonable?  I'm also planning on running a small powerhead inside the tank, for battery backup and additional flow.     


Thanks in advance.

Massive overkill

I have a 14 gallon with a 0.5, turned down a bit.  Go with a 1.0.
