I am wanting to do the same thing. I've got my brute in my storage room off my kitchen, so I've got about (12) feet to reach the tank. I'm not positive about what size pump to buy. It's gotta be better than my current method of hauling pitchers of water back and forth - use it to scoop out old and into sink, and then to scoop new and into tank.

I soak an entire bath towel every time.

I also have about 12-15 feet to my tank from the trash can of water. lol I use a rio 1100 pump and it works like a charm.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

I put a ehime 650 in it and it fills it up in no time at all but it only has to move the water 6 feet

Yeah I am hoping it will help keep my levels in check and I switched salts to coralife and now my tank is really cleared up plus I know the filter sock helped a lot as well
