    You need a preesure rated pump for it to work like a Iwaki MD70. My advice is to get 2 Tunze nano stream pumps, less wattage and big flow. Check out "the coral tank in Canada" on Reef Central, they use only Eductors on the return pumps and closed loop, no stream pumps running at all.

    mmm big and bulky if you ask me and yes a ghood pressure rated pump is a must..

    we use them at work for our chrome plant but im not sure where they got them from, probably imported them themselves
