    New tank is coming next week and im assuming i will need a bigger return pump to meet the flow requirements.

    The DT is going to hold about 200L of water and the sump about 30 - 40 L. The return pump will have to pump 1.4m up, Currently i have a resun 1500 which im guessing wont cut it.

    Suggestions?

    A Haelea HX 6530 whic does about 1750lph at 2.3 metres head should be more than enough. You wil probably end up with about 1400lph after all your plumbing which is more than enough for a 240 litre tank. They are also good value for money

    Glad I went with it Z opposed to the reef octopus. That bugger pushes some serious water 2 metres up with lots of twists and turns
