Hi, We have a red sea max nano and would like to go a bit bigger. We quicky replaced the original skimmer and recirc pump with a tunze 9001 skimmer and a eheim compact 1000 which are much more quiet than the original stuff. the purpose is to keep a reef with lps and sps and some small fish plus cuc (which we have already btw). Would like to give the fish a bit more space, have some more room to work in. A sump underneath is handy to put in eg cheato reactor in and or a biopellet reactor (or frags and unidentified critters and mother in law and stuff). We want to keep the volumes of water changes small (daily alk mg ca dosing with dosing pump and weekly wc). Can a system of 170 or 250 liter (about 40 to 60 G) with a sump underneath run as quiet as a AIO? Having the reefer 170 and 250 vs max e 170 and 250 in mind from red sea for instance, but not needing the skimmer or pump from the e series (which is more expensive). A pretty silent system is important for us. Who has experience with both aio and smaller system with sump? Also looking for the sweet spot for low maintenance.
I know that it has been asked before, but this rear chamber on my Biocube 8g is TINY so I am looking for real world experience and recommendations on a return pump that is under 2.5in long and 2in wide. I would like it to push 250+ gph but the stock is only 106. I am using a W2 that I tested today during a leak check (man they are silent!) so i will have a PH for movement if low flow is the only way to keep quiet. This tank is going to be on my work desk about 2 feet from me, I work with customers over the phone a lot so background noise needs to be at minimum. Thanks in advance everyone
