Do internal pumps actually heat up the water that much? I was planning on an internal because the plumbing would be easier.

I am happy with my Eheim 1262. It is quiet and efficient. It moves 900 per hr w/ 0 head. I have 4 ft head too. I know they make a smaller pump then what I have for my 150. I love Eheim. They are energy efficient, quiet and run forever.

I prefer to keep it in sump so I won't have to drill the sump. I just measured the holes in my tank and the drain is 1", return is 3/4".

Would a Mag9.5 be enough? I'm open to suggestions to other brands. Just dont know which ones are good other than Mags. Is there something out there that runs more quiet and efficiently?
