Did I just go overboard? :\

Just won an auction for 2 Amiracle overflow boxes w/ 1 U-tube each & a Mag 9.5 pump. All for my 60 gal tank. Is this overkill? 8O Couldn't resist for the price.

I'm concerned about:
1) noise factor... going in living room w/a 20L sump... how loud will the pump & "toilet splash" be?
2) @ 4 feet head w/2 directional returns (with a T line splitting return) will the return current disturb my future FOWLR?

Both items new, could resell if needed... or total steal at $80 for it all?

I'd say you made out like a bandit!

haha... figured as much. But what about the water current rate & noise factor? Would love to hear opinions!

If you have issues with noise check into "Stockman" and "Durso" Stand Pipes

http://www.dursostandpipes.com/

Be sure to check out the popular modifications on the page
Hope this helps

Those look good! Need to try one... noise isn't that big a concern in all reality... work full time & then get home & watch movies LOUD...

More concerned with making sure the current doesn't go and kill my fish... then again, I guess I can always put a valve on the return to restrict waterflow
