I'm using a rio 1100 I think and it goes about 15 feet across my living room and up about 4-5 feet. It's not the fastest but I didn't want a gushing flow anyways. lol Rio has alot of different pumps in many outputs and they are the cheapest I've found.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

I just use a regular return pump and I have 15 -20 feet of tubing going across if I need it and a clam to secure the tubing to the tank

I dont have a spare pump though... I have one that has about three feet max head it would work to transfer rodi to my mixing bucket. But not really needed as thats outside and doesnt matter if i splash.

Ill check out the rio, i looked at a couple remoras earlier that seemed like they would work, but a touch spendy for convenience.

Oddysea has some cheap pumps which could be used for transferring water.

Thanks ibraham, is that a tusk i see?

Added some phosban, hope it helps cuz it was nearly 40 bucks for 100ml! Their chart shows i should have at least 200ml in there... Cant drop that kinda cash on it though, imm sure its cheaper if i didnt buy locally here...

So the gfo is working nicely, stll have algae building up but not too quickly. It looks as if ill have it beat shortly.

Also the beauty has a white spot on his dorsal fin... Always something right?

Don't be mad at yourself about it. Alot of people haven't had luck wit Coral Beauty's as they are prone to ick. I've tried five times total in 2 different tanks and just gave up.
