    Hi

    I'm looking for a needle wheel pump rated for 2500l. Something not too expensive.

    Thanks

    Is that the Atman pump? You don't perhaps have any other Skimmer pumps lying around?

    Its for a Bubble Magus NAC 77 skimmer that uses 2 pumps. Don't really need a specific fitting because the fitting that it come with, looks like a standard fitting that can fit in silicone tube.

    With skimmer pumps it not so much the LPH flow rate but more about the air intake in LPH as the flow flow potential is reduced with the mixing air.
    This one is rated at 400-450 LPH, but if you now replaced it with a normal impeller then the flow LPH is 2050 as per manufactures spec.
