    As i see it the main advantage of a closed loop system is that you can hide or incorporate the outlets into the rockwork, that way you dont have a tank full of pupmps and wires...

    And CLS system cannot flood, do not have head pressure, no need to lift the water.

    Howzit, Check this thread out...

    I had the same question as u and found this...
    If i under stood it correctly, a close loop system jus eliminates the need for power heads in the display tank, basically, suck water from the display tank and spit it back into the display tank to create flow?!? i think...

    CHECK IT HERE...

    Not REviews - I'm talking about Views ... On the live feed page it shows each thread with a "views" and a "replies" count.... this thread has 0 views and 14 replies at the moment - which is technically impossible .... mods???? Technical glitch in the making here...
