Return Pump recommendation?

Recommended Posts

I have a Red Sea Max E 170 and they recommend 2700l/h or 714GPH for return. That sounds like an awful lot. I see the Sicce 3.0 is what they recommend. I think need new pump its acting weird. I have currently a jebao DCP6500. Anyone? I want something good and may want to be able to hook it up to Profilux if possible

You can always choke a conventional pump Or turn a DC pump down a little, but you can’t turn either up so don’t be afraid to go up a little. I will never buy another Jebao pump again but some people have had luck with them. My advice there is take the savings and buy a spare. My experience with Sicce has been very good I have used them for reactors and they are long lasting and quiet. Danner mag pumps are not very glamorous, but they run for years. There are many good choices out there now to be honest.

I just bought  EHEIM compactON 2100 after reading the reviews.. I read should be between 3-10x turnover ratio. I am guessing the 2100 will give me around 300 GPH at 4ft. I cant find the chart however. I Am hoping this be sufficent. I have a MP 40 as well.
