I bought 2 of them and just got them the other day. Now I'm ready to start building my stands, and then mounting the pump, CO2 reactor, heater, etc. Can't wait til I get the lumber now, I got all my tools in.

Two thoughts:

On pumps in general, as the one LWB listed, you will not get max. GPM at max. head. I wish they had a little more info on that pump. They did not show what gpm is at max head unless I missed it.

The other thought is to not limit yourself to aquarium supply places. I think sometimes we pay a little more for things when they are labeled as use in an aquarium.

Any pumps gph at max head is 0 gph or as most pumps list it as shutoff meaning it doesn't have the pressure to pump it beyond that head height.

That pump drops off 68 gph with a 4ft head and probably double that with a 8 ft head so it should produce around 600-650 gph with a 7ft vertical/10 ft horizontal application. Obviously vertical pumping is going to put more pressure against a pump than horizontal but 10 ft of pipe is going to add 1-2 head height pressure as well.

reefs.org has some great reading on pumps as well.

That is true Tecwzrd...I'm still up in the air on what I'm going to do exactly......Thanks for the info!!

I agree with you Sparky that we do pay more because it says aquarium or pond use....
