For the 90 gal tank a seaclone will basicly be useless. I would suggest while its alot more expensive a RedSea Berlin Turbo.

The seaclone is really good only for systems of 50gal or less.

An Aqua Medic Turbo flotor 1000 multi also works well.It can be used as a hang on or in sump which is nice.

Take it from a newbie like myself...Do not get the seaclone..I had one and then I got a res sea berlin turbo classsic and it was like night and day.The red sea was pulling out cupfuls of junk...The seaclone just doesnt work that great for larger tanks, although some people are using them with larger tanks and say they work good with some mods but this isnt a cut corners hobby....

But I do have to say that since my friggen red sea pump impellor died I am back to seaclone til red $#@% Sea sends me a new one..

At least its a backup!

I have a 90 gal reef and I use the Aqua C EV180 with a Mag 7 pump. I'm very pleased with its performance. http://www.marinedepot.com/a_ps_ac_info.asp?CartId=

I think one of the Aqua C EV's would do you a good job. Either an EV120 or an EV 180.

The Euroreef ES5-3 is rate dfor a 90 gallon tank and is very affordable compared to the regular euroreefs!the Euroreef is cheaper from the start as it already comes with a quiet energy efficient pump! The Aqua-C's don't!
