I have just acquired a free 10G glass tank that I plan on forming a sump with for my 29G SW FOWLR
I have a spare maxijet 1200 powerhead that I want to use as a return pump, its rated at 295 GPH
. I have a CPR backpack overflow box to provide water into the sump (which has a flow rate of 300gph)
The water is being pumped up approximately four feet (give or take). What output am I actually getting from my maxijet? I can't find any tables online (like the ones that mag-drive posts).
Will a maxijet work for me? or should I buy some mag-drive pump?
Once again, it's a 10G sump for a 29G tank. The sump is about 4 feet below the display tank.
