No I didnít one side wants to work but the other side doesnít! Kinda sucks tbh but Iím going to buy another sump set up! I really donít like how much water and fittings this set up has outside of my sump. A lot of water leaks in the fittings etc. im looking at getting a new setup for 1,500.

I run Jeboa DC return pumps .
I use the 12,000 for my 180g with the sump in the basement..
It is digitally controlled so flow is very easy and energy efficient to adjust.
They are also about 1/2 the price of other DC pumps..
