    Default Pump for a 180

    I bought a 180g aga that I plan on drilling, trying to figure out what the best pump would be for this and curious if anyone has any they're looking to sell.

    Mag drive pumps are a good deal for the price. But if you have a bit of extra cash opt for the water blasters by reef octapus.

    If your going to drill then use an external pump.The blue line pumps are very quiet and transfer very little heat and are priced well with a great warranty.Here's a link.

    Blue Line External Aquarium Water Pumps

    The 55hd or 70hd would be great matches for a 180 good luck
