    Howzit guys...

    I'm planning on getting one of the two pumps. I noticed they are both with a controller but my question in witch one is little less powerful on there lowest setting and also i would like to only use one in my cube of 500mm. Would that be good enough flow?

    I would like to go with a clean look and the RW-8 looks cleaner but the WP-10 is little smaller?

    Thanks
    Jason

    Agreed, the WP10 is just a little dinky for 50x50cm cube !

    I was also leaning towards the RW-8...

    RW-8 It is then, like the magnet attachment.
    @Andre@ReefAquatics, you have stock?
