Pretty sure a pump is a pump. Read some reviews on it no matter what you buy.

If you are going to be putting it in the salt water you might want to seal any screws/metal that is showing with silicone so it doesn't rust. (sometimes they use cheap screws that will rust in SW when they make a pump for FW)

Most of the ones used for SW don't have any metal showing... including on the inside the impeller is often plastic or ceramic. Or at least coated with a sealant.

Quick update... ammonia .25 i expect that to drop to 0 any day now and nitrites up to 5.0 seems little high but thats fine.so everything is coming along smoothly. Shopping for a return pump now and something for a fuge light. Also have lots of crap and not alot of space and need somewhere to hang ky lights so thinkingof builing some storage cabnets on each side of my tank. Can store stuff and hand lights from them i hope.

Ya i know. But when your doing a cycle from scratch it takes time and not alot to report. You just kinda have to wait. I know the process so i dont test very offen. I only need about 3 more peices of equipment i think. And i dont need 2 of them till i get coral. So not alot going on.
