i am setting up a 130 gal
tank with a 30 gal
the sump will have three sections, mechanical/bio filter / refuge / return.
i already have an aquaclear 5000 powerhead pump which in theory is 3800ltrs/hour, howeer in practice it moves 1500ltrs/hour.
have recomended that i use a aquamedic oceanrunner 3500.
should i stick with the aquaclear 5000? is that enough turnover through the sump/filter system.
i will have additional powerheads to circulate the water within the tank.
any advise would be appreciated. i'm not sure if the lfs
are giving me poor advise just to make money.
