i like the reef flo pumps and the genX pumps. both are external pumps, so i guess i should ask what you want to run, external or submersible ?? if submersible i like the mag drive pumps.

some of the reef flo pumps are high priced, but the genX pumps are great for the price.

IMO the mag drive pumps are the best.

the mag drives are GREAT pumps, but in my experience ... they are loud when plumbed externally.

Iwaki and Panworld pumps are nice as well. I like the Reeflo's as I run a dart but they are high flow pumps and take large PVC(1.5"/2")

Make sure you size pump on your overflow capacity
