    Hey Guys
    Planning another tank but want the best pumps in this one. Between the above two pumps only, Is there anybody out there that can tell me which will be the better option to go for.Both are 4500L/ph pumps. Tank size will be L900 x H500 x D450
    Thanks

    As an owner of 2 6045's i can tell you that you will not regret purchasing these pumps. They are tiny/energy efficient and can be pointed in virtually any position. Unfortunately I can't comment on the Sicce pump.

    You won't even notice they're there. Dead silent;)Even during startup there's no "clunking" sound like the seios make. I know I've also got a couple of them.

    Current tank 1.8X0.8X.0.65. Have/Had LPS/Softies etc. But I've got a couple of pumps 2X6105 Electronic pumps(Up to 13 000l) 2X6045's and 2 M1100 Seios behind the scaping :)

    Apologies - I meant 1.5X0.8X.0.65 and not 1.8:)

    Going to change the scaping within the next week or so and go for a much sleeker look. Just tossed in all my LR during the last move and let it settle in. Needs lots of attention and will probably take out the two seios then

    Anyway, have you made up your mind yet. I seriously suggest you consider the 6045's. You won't regret it, I promise;)
