    I think the 15000LPH will be too much for a 600 cube. DOnt know how far you can turn them down though.

    Is the resun rated for 15000L? Im using a 3000L resun, works good for me, but need more flow now. But the pump itself is'nt bad.
    im using it on a 120L tank

    The Resun overated pump so it will never do 15000 l/h as stated. Its a bloody strong pump which I never had problems in 4 years and never serviced them. You can control them to suit your size tank so it will work fine on your cube. If you use seperate dc power supply than the pump will be far more powerfull. My ones are converted to use in waveboxes and work very well. You can check on You Tube what those Resuns pump do in waveboxes, it will rock your tank.

    awsome pump and actually very gentle in flow delivery, i think it MOVES more water than it PUMPS... i have had it on a .800 x .500 x 500 and it worked perfectly with lps and softies..

    Well put guys! Yes this is an over rated pump/wavemaker in terms of flow rating, but it disperses water beautifully! It will suit your aquarium perfectly. :thumbup:

    They awesome pumps dude they work great i have five and never had any problems with them except the coraline growing all over them and i just clean that of so the water can be sucked in freely. :tt2: They nemmie safe too not like the seio brothers. I know i have experience on slising nemmies with seio's but not these.

    I also have the Resun wavers.. |I have 4 in my setup now, and they are realy good. Very soft waterflow, and the 3 different wave settings are ideal.
