    Default Which Pump?

    I have my tank almost setup and found out my impeller on my mag24 is shot.

    What is a good pump in the 1800 - 2400 gph range?
    the mags are noisy but will buy another if i need to.
    tank is 200 gal with 30 gal sump, return plumbing from sump is 3/4 and feeds 6 jetted heads for flow in tank.
    even a used pump would be fine as i am broke after setting this up lol.
    It's all about the reef. :YEAH:

    Check out the Reeflo line of pumps. They are a little more money but you will love every year that goes by without touching it.

    I ran Mag 18's for years..things are a pain for sure. I hate ceramic shafts!

    Reef octopus water blasters are nice about 1/2 the wattage for the equivalant in a mag also. How far from pump to return?

    Trust me get a Reef octopus water blaster pump. I have two and will never go back. I ran mag pumps for years. Go win the HY-9000. Energy efficient and small.
