Best pump for Fluval 13.5

Recommended Posts

EvilFish

Hi,

 

I tried Eheim Compact 1000, fits well, great flow but heats the tank too much.

Stock pump is silent and doesn't heat the tank that much, but really weak.

 

Is there any other good pump for this tank? To improve the flow and reduce heat.

 

Others pumps that can works:

Cobalt Aquatics MJ1200 - 295 GPH

Sicce Syncra Silent 1.0 - 251 GPH

Cobalt Aquatics E-X-T Inline - 210 GPH

Hydor Centrifugal 300 GPH

 

Somebody tried on of those pumps or something else?

 

Thanks

Then you'll write a feedback?

Be careful with the temp, the pump that strong can rise it too much.

If your concerned about the heat from your eheim that pushes 15w of power so does the mightyjet aio pump.   You will still have those heat issue.   

 

Best to confirm if it will fit but the mightyjet is 3.7" long.   I'm not sure but I don't think it will fit.    Either way of you get it and it fit give us a review.

 

 

If your worried about heat I dont think this the pump for you.

I love it.  Super quiet 50 more gallons of flow per hour.  For a small tank of this size i believe 1.0 is to much

Tried Cobalt MJ900, fits (not perfectly, but fits), silent, much stronger and do not overheat the tank.

 

230GPH is nice for this tank.

I use the Hydor Centrifugal 300 GPH and it has worked well. The only thing I will caution you about it is that if you use the stock hose, the pump will not sit on the bottom of the tank. It's about an inch short.
