    That's a 37L tank

    Something small. Check out the small Seio pumps.

    seriously?
    A 4000L/h pump in a 37L tank?
    That's 108 times turnover.

    OK, it is controllable, but what is its lowest setting?

    Tested one in a 150 litre tank. At highest setting wasnt powerful enough. Changed for wp 25 have it on highest wave setting. Only moves carib sea special grade substrate in one corner when on 8000 l per hour constant speed. In wave modes no prob.

    Wp 10 is tiny!!!:thumbup:

    Pulsed modes. Half time on half off. So flow turnover at like 25 times per hour
