    Hey guys! I went looking for a return pump today at the pet shops and I'm still confused. The pump I'm looking for is for a 25l sump with a 60l display. I found one today that I think might do the trick but It's so expensive and I don't even know If It's too much or too little flow.

    Make: I could not remember
    LPH (L/h): 1700/1500
    Price: R350

    the make will play a bit of a role as to if its a reputable pump manufacturer or not..

    a thing to consider is the wattage of the pump.. as the pump ill run 24/7 so yuo dont want to be buying a pump of 200w when you can get one at 45 -65w that will do the same thing..

    i would also consider the height the pump will need to pump and try not to place too many elbows as they add pressure to the pump hampering its delivery...

    I'll try to find out what the product's name was. I remembered the box saying it pumps at the hight of 1.3m and the wattage was less than a 100. P.S. My tank is almost 1m off the ground.

    Have a shop around for either Astro, Aqua H2o or Lifetech pumps, they decent and fairly cheap.

    I've decided not to buy the pump coz a friend of mine is selling his complete system.
