    I want to improve flow from display to rear chambers and through rear chambers. Stock pump is pretty wimpy.

    What flowrate should I look to add? Already got 5000l/h in the display so a bit worried i'll be adding too much?

    Hi Matt - how are you planning to add this higher flow? Are you going to drill / cut the built-in "sump" to allow more water flow INTO it? That would be the first step - and also - WHY would you want to do this? How much flow does it have at the moment?
