AquaPod Plumbing Questions
As I still play around with the Flo in my AquaPod 24 and the whole temp issue, a few question have risen. I want to have everything ready to go before i order the live rock and sand.
First, I had originally bought a Maxi Jet 1200 to create more flow in the tank, but with my temps sitting at 80-81 with lights, heater, and Maxi Jet 1200 power head running was plannon on replacing the stock pump. I was reading that I should use the maxi jet in place of the stock. To do this though I need to buy new tubing and elbows, but am not sure what size. The stock pump tubing is to large. I did a few searches on this forum, but did not find anything. So if anyone could tell me what size I need, it will be greatly appreciated.
My Seconded question is that I was planning on buying a maxi-jet (600?) in which i would also house it in the left chamber with the other pump. I was then going to plumb it so the return goes to the right side and over the wall with a few elbows. Is this a good idea? Should i get a maxi jet with more GPH
My last question is do any of you know the wattage of the Maxi Jets? I tried finding the wattage with no luck. I ask because I was also considering just replacing the stock pump with a Rio 1100 plus which pumps out 382 GPH
at 23 Watts. If I did this I would scrap the maxi jet 1200 because that would be way over 2
and go with a Maxi-jet 600 for the other side.
As always thanks for your help.
