Jebao WP10

I'm looking for more flow to my tank and I've been looking at the wp10. Does anyone have it?

I really like the controllability and rather good pricing. My current tank is a 17g jebo but I'm upgrading to a 45 cube within the year. I'm assuming the lower setting would be good for my sps dominant tank and then the higher setting in the 24x24 tank. I'll even have my current koralia 425 to add in if I want some extra flow.

They are decent pumps. A step up from the Koralias, but below Tunze and Vortechs. I plan on ordering the WP25 soon.

I think I'm gonna go with that. Maybe buy another one when I get the 45 and sell the koralia.

I have 2 WP25's on my 50 gallon. They are nice pumps. I actually have the new twin controller where you can run 2 pumps on one controller. It is also more contollable as there are more speed ajustments you can made. If you are doing mainly SPS in a 45 I would go two WP25. I have mainly LPS in my tank and I just dial them down.

Now in your current 17G the WP25 may be too much as they are very strong pumps. Although with the new controller you can dial them down quite a bit.

One WP25 and a K240 in a 55 gets you atleast 35x the flow. Just a wp25 pry gets you 28x. You wouldn't need two.

Yeah, you think I'd be able to pull a wp25 in a 17g if I'd dial down to the lowest setting? I like the idea of a high flow tank and again it's still sps dominant.

The lowest setting is about 800gph I believe. So it could work. Why not just a wp10 that'll be more then enough?

I'd rather commit and make the purchase for the wp25 for my tank now so it'll be one less thing to purchase when I upgrade.

Oh I see... It should work fine. 800-100 is believe is the flow range you would want.
