Two return pumps. Wow. Well you purchased it already so... As you know if it's too powerful for your setup you can always divert some flow back into the fuge. Just a little extra work to setup. Let us know how it turns out.

Well I hooked the mag 12 up today and so far everything is staying the same. There is more flow into the main but my overflows are keeping up. Thanks for all the advice folks.

Glad to hear it, I'd be surprised if it increased your temp by more then 1-2 degrees.

I`m really not seeing much as far as temps. Maybe one degree but it`s only the 2nd day so let me post in a few more days and we will see.

Glad you like it. When I was working at the LFS, the Mag pumps were very popular with the customers (and the boss). Everyone I know seems to like them and recommend them.

Quote:
Rio's will last about 5 years tops (more like 3 realistically)with proper cleaning, mags will last double that with taking them out and running them in a bucket of vinegar water to get the buildup out once every 3 months or so.
I've read a lot of horror stories about Rio's... it seems that they not only fail OFTEN, but that the failures are catastrophic in a much higher incidence than other brands. By that, I mean that the impeller seizes and overheats to the point where the thing blows up and leaks stuff into your tank, or that it actually electrocutes you on occasion!

You should be really happy with the Mag- good luck!

Any increase in the temp? I may try the Mag 12 I have laying around if you don't get one.

Maybe 1/2 to 1 degree at the most. Since you have a 125 like me you should be OK. I really cant tell the difference. Thanks everyone.
