Tunze pump silence 

sounds like an 80’s band

 

 

How are you going to mount the light?

Yessir, Just some odds and ends, bits and pieces. Needed a new gravel tube for cleaning/water changes, and I'm getting an auto feeder for the other tank I'm going to set up. But one where I can control the specific dosage for 12 or 14 meals total, so not as long between refilling, but more finely tuned as far as portions

 

And 6 HOB filters...lol.... Impulse purchase

It's a little noisy...  Though maybe no noisier than my Azoo Mignon 60.  My no name brand pump is WAY noisy tho so together super noisy.  -_-

 

Flow is pretty good tho for a tiny pump.

Hanging filters to side team.

I'm gonna stuff it in like a chipotle burrito. If it doesn't fit fully assembled, I will take the top off of prime.

I'm definitely doing side, but it does make light mounting more challenging.  The HOB is tiny tho so maybe I can fit it all on one side.

I’m still waiting to see if my design will be fine for my HOB 🤦‍♂️ I don’t want to have to make it bigger to accommodate the pump

Why not do a hanging light?

I cant believe these small pumps make so much noise, my 300 gallon  was dead silent.  My EVOreef is sooooo loud, that's why I got the 80's tunze lol.

Yeah. It's terrible. The collective humming sound might make me go cray.  I may need to upgrade the powerhead to something quieter, but it will likely be bigger cuz my ph is tiny af.

If you’re chilling the tank then why run a heater?
