    Circulation Pumps

    Afternoon all,
    I am in the early stages of setting up my 90 gallon and was curious what type of circulation y'all have on you tanks. Previously I had Hydor koralia, which I had on a wave maker, but was thinking of upgrading. So I would like to know what pumps you use? and why?

    i had 2 MP40s on the 300 at school. They died and I replaced with Jebao.

    I have 1 MP40 and one Jebao on my 220 at home.

    I have a mix of everything and honestly feel like the price pretty much reflects what you can except life wise out of them. The gyre has alot of moving parts that seem to ware out but bang for buck there pretty great. The ecotech MP's are very reliable and go for ever if you clean them once and awhile. Not a big fan of the hydor or korilla pumps long term they have issues but are very cost effective. The new pumps from APEX might be worth looking into, i have not tried them yet. GL
    Four individual systems Right now.
    30gal red sea 130d lps/softies/anemone tank, kalk ato, reef bright led strip.
    40 softies set up.
    550 total gallon marineland 300 DD main system 18 months old now and stabilized. T5 VHO lights/ BLUE led strip, Fully custom built LIFE REEF sump and FUGE, AWESOME 60" tall skimmer, and 1000+ gallon rated custom Ca reactor, 3 50 gallon attached SPS frag systems lite with a combination of HM and LED and T5 fixtures.
    A 200 gallon MARS quarintine with UV system/ medication for new arrivals.

    Still lots to learn about the hobby but I have amassed a great collection of real beauties. I have broken past the stage of keeping things alive and now there actually growing out. Which is a big hurdle for many beginners I must admit. Good information and advise is hard to get sometimes and the club has done wonders with respect to quality advise and help in the hobby.

    THANKS Orlando Reef Educators Organization!!!!

    gone though many hydors. seem to last about 2 yrs, similar experience with one Jabo. Have a vortech that has been runing for years. and recently added another. Also sicce pumps on two tanks seem durable and to be pretty bullet proof.

    I keep water, last checked about 600 gallons worth.
    Problem is animals keep using it as there water closet.
    Worst of all the littlest ones keep using up all the supplies.
