Hey X, You think it is too much? I thought about it and decided to go bigger and dial it down if I need to. The manual encourages restricting it (at the outlet) bc it will "lower the amperage and lengthen the life of the seal"...
I will also be teeing off the main return to feed a separate refugium and both DT returns will have ball valves that I can adjust.
If it is still too much, it came with a smaller impeller to lower it to 2600
I am contemplating getting some buckets of sand from the beach but I'm sure with my luck I'll either get arrested or the sand I collect will be contaminated with some toxin that will nuke the tank.
Todd- glad to hear it, I may end up going open to try it out.
The tank was donated to the thrift store and I got it from them for 800.
The setup came with an aqua c ev 240 without a pump. It recommends a mag18 but was wondering if anyone has used anything different?
I added a new piece of plywood on the bottom because the old one looked pretty worn, then I coated the whole interior in polyurethane.
Here is a layout of the return plumbing. I'm waiting on a bulkhead to finish the sump.
