I'm very new here but have pretty much read a lot on these forums regarding my new 90G reef setup. Great info and great people...
I have recently setup and plumbed my 90G acrylic with NSW
and approx 110lbs of LR
. My lighting consists of 4 65w PC
's. I'm running a Sedra pump for my ASM skimmer, 900gph return pump in my sump and a 1100 SEIO PH in the display. My house is always about 72-74 degrees during the day. WITHOUT the lights on during the day my water temp reaches 85 degrees. I'm probably going to buy a 1/4 hp artica chiller tomorrow.
My Q is, if I plumb the return hose into the chiller do I need a stronger return pump? I was told that doing it with my current pump will reduce my gph
rate to around 500 gph
Waddya guys/gals suggest??
Thanks in advance,
