Good External pump (Not mag) for 20H CL SPS

topic says it all... i need an external pump for a CL (probably off of 2 sea swirls or 4 loc line nozzles) for an SPS 20H. i'd prefer not to go mag as i've had problems running those externally.

 

thanks!

panworld / blueline

(same pump, different name)

marine depot carries the panworlds. they rock.

 

what kind of GPH Should i look at... it's 20G with a 10 gallon sump, and maybe a 5 gallon fuge.

if you are running this pump in a closed loop, i'd look at the 50PX. That will give ~600GPH at no head. if you are concerned that that will be too much flow, the 40PX (~500GPH @ 0h) would work too. I would really only run this through a CL though. All that water through an overlow and 10g sump will be LOUD!

Eheim rocks. Quiet, reliable, and long-lasting, albeit expensive.

I'm not a fan of the metal screws on the so-called "reef-safe" Mag-Drive pumps... <_<

My Ehiem is awesome! I only have one complaint, though. It's TOO quiet! I was hoping that the gentle humming sound of the pump would drown out the annoying whine of my lights' fan and the sizzle of my skimmer. No dice. I can't hear the pump at all!

 

Oh, and it's too expensive (I guess that's TWO complaints), but worth every penny.
