Ordered my new skimmer. Went with the BM180A it's shorter so it will be perfect. Still waiting on petco to have the sale so I can get my sump tank and my QT tank. I think I may order my power heads on Friday. I think I'm going with two Koralia 1400. What do you guys think?

Give the eBay ones I mentioned a shot. I know you'll be pleased.

That would work and I can then get other small stuff. Has anyone else used them and are pleased? Just want as many insights as I can get.

Here's a review on the 1300gph model on a different site http://www.3reef.com/forums/filters-...ew-131570.html If you do order make sure you get the 2 for $30-33 instead of one for $20-25.

I have them right now in a 75. Pretty impressive power heads for the price! I actually went down to just one, so now I have a back-up!

Looks like I'm gonna order the two powearheads from eBay. If they are a flop it's only $25 I'm losing. Thanks!

Also looking at the return pump for my sump. What do you guys suggest. I was between two before. The mag drive and the one mr x suggested. It was a quite one I believe!

I like my Mag-Drive. Relatively quiet so far.

This is a four foot tank, right? Standard 75?

That's gonna be some good flow. I have two 750's, a 240, and 300 return. That's 2040gph total and it is a lot of flow. You will have 2600 before the return. But it'll probably be okay if you diffuse the flow off of the glass or something. I don't think too much flow is possible but you will have a very flowful tank!
