I am in the process of setting-up a new saltwalter aquarium. My question is about the specifics of routing the plumbing for the sump. Unfortunately, the closest I could locate my sump to the aquarium resulted in about 25 linear feet of piping between the two. Of those 25 feet, about 10 are running vertical, the rest is horizontal. My question: What kind of pump would you suggest that would be able to output about 1300 gph
at a head height of 25 ft? Also, rather than mounting the pump at the bottom, near the sump, can I mount the pump beneath the tank, so that it only has to push the water 5 feet? (I doubt this will work though, almost needs a second pump to prime it). Thanks for any advice.
