Broken Return Pump

Recommended Posts

so my return pump took a crap on me and my backup has something wrong with it.  Just ordered a bew one but will my tank be okay for 2 days with just the power head (jebao) and a return pump thats about 3 times to small?

There is people on here that run their tanks full time with no filter/return pump. If you aim it at the surface you should have enough water movement for gas exchange but, it would be more about what corals you have and how they would react with minimal flow..

Is the return pump in the back chambers of an aio?


If so, the water not moving can become an issue so it would be best to either run an under powered pump or an air hose to keep the water oxygenated in the back chambers.
