    Where was the rock you are adding? Dry rock, from out of a tank some time ago. Rather cycle that in a tub with just a powerhead and heater.

    Hello and Welcome @Oceans12 DC pumps are more and more becoming the standard nowadays for return and even on skimmers. They use less wattage compared for same flow although they tend struggle a bit with back pressure.

    Algae scrubber

    Constant water level

    Other way around, Your pump is too small for the return pipe thickness. That is why you need to reduce / restrict it or use valves. A 50mm diameter pipe can handle a lot more flow under gravity than what your return pipe can deliver, or your overflow box can handle. No restrictions and you...
