40b Reef Planning!

Ok thanks! Any advice on a return pump.

As for the Jebaos, would one WP10 work? I really like and this price isn't that much more then I had planned for power heads!

I have wp40's in my 180g and they are pretty nice. I like the ability to adjust the flow and they can be setup to go at half speed at night with the light sensing plug thing that comes with it.
I am running a mp10 now in my 40b and not really sure but I think it needs another powerhead. lol

How much flow does the Mp10 produce? I can always add a quick Koralia if I have too.

For a pump it depends on a couple different things, here's a couple real good articles on sumps. The 3 part one linked to on the bottom is probably the most comprehensive article on sumps I've ever read.

And the wp10 should be enough flow volume wise, you may need another small one on the other side if you have dead spots

I have mp10s on my 40's and I had to add a k nano to each to supplement on the other side

I have to admit the Bubble Magus look amazing! I'll see their prices when they come out. I think I'll save about $750 for this tank. It seems like it should be good.

I'm reading through the pump article now!

Just got my order of Caribsea Rocks yesterday and they are good for the price id recommend them, i should have waited to order them as i checked my lfs the next day and they have good live rock for $2.40 a pound! Oh well lol i got 4 pounds of it to seed my dry rock, it'll be interesting to watch it transform into "live" rock

40b Reef Planning!

What do you guys think about "upgrading" my 20g high into the 40b?
Eliminating partial costs, a bigger tank, I can use the 20 as a sump..
I may be able to move it much sooner.

I'd just move my stock to both of the 10s when I'm moving around the tanks.

First I'd drill the tank and build the stand. Then just plumb, move the rock and sand over, add a 20 pounds of new live rock, and order one of the new Bubble Magus power heads but for now use the koralias I have. Would it still have to cycle? It seems like a good alternative to me. Your opinions?
