Basically my return pump's chamber has water filled to the lowest and my filter section of the tank only covers one media box which I dont think is normal? When I first got this tank my pump was good and the chamber was filled decently making little to no noise. Consequently, one day my sister woke me up to tell me that my aquarium was flooded to the brim with water. It looks like the return pump expelled almost all the water in both its chamber and the media bag/box chambers onto the main display area. I took out the water and I took out my pump aswell to see what was wrong with it but I couldn't find anything wrong. But I did have trouble putting it back onto the same place so the tubing kinda expanded which made a bit more noise. I honestly do not know what to do and I am desperately looking for help, should i buy a new pump and tubing? Or should I return the tank as a whole to get another one which is a bigger problem because my lfs is like 30 minutes away.
Ok everyone I have been looking to replace my MJ1200 return pump for a silent one. We recently moved to a new studio apartment and noise has become an issue with it. I was looking around and there isn’t that much information as to what pumps fit comfortably and silently into the return chamber of this tank. the MJ1200 is , of course, discontinued, but the dimensions according to BRS are Dimensions - 6" x 3" x 2" it has been running for two years but we had a larger house before where the tank sat in a different room to where we sleep ...now here we are. the IM Mighty Jet (326gph) seems like an obvious choice, but it is $109. Not a problem but you do have to take a step back before you just dish out a hundred bux. I haven’t been able to find anyone using this pump in this tank, except for one snippet of a video on YouTube (scroll to 0:46) that shows it put into the tank, but only for a second and the pump looks like it doesn’t really fit except for an awkward placement where it is touching all the walls of the chamber.... doubt that will be very silent. But who knows...? The sicce silent line is pretty convincing but there are many mixed reviews out there. Some say it isn’t silent, others say the opposite. at this point, it isn’t the cost that is the issue, it’s the silence that I desperately seek. The tank has a Vortech mp10, so all I really need is to push water back into the tank, I would guesstimate ~200gph should do the trick...
Downsizing from my 50 gal to my 10 gal, livestock has been taken care of and going to a good home, now I have equipment to get rid of that I will no longer be using. All of these items were purchased from BRS (proof of purchase). Tank was started October 2015. Everything is in perfect condition, working well and has never had any mechanical issues nor otherwise. Regular dusting has been performed on the equipment in the two years it has run my 50 gal reef. Skimmer and pumps will be vinegar washed and scrubbed as best as humanly possible for you.
