Hi bros,

Would like to know whether can use it with the sump to return the water to 4.5ft high tank (4x2x4.5)?

Where can I get the tank? Convenient to disclose the price range for this pump?

Thanks.

Jenson

Not really optimal as headloss will be a challenge for this pump.

As in Fish tank or Sump Tank?

Price range should be in the blue note range, and readily available, there are also similar in design aquanic brand ... that function and look the same.

Cost for $28 at C328... Remark by aunty is that there is no complain nor negative feedback for aquanic.

Both Tom800 and Aquanic 3000 are made in China.

I have a Dyna 3000 (Made in Japan) More then a decade old ($42) , Tom800 (Made in Japan) 8 Years on ($45) and Aquanic 3000 (Made in China) 3 months old ($28)


Both Dyna 3000 and Tom800 (Made in Japan) are no longer available.

The current Tom800 and Aquanic 3000 from china.

My tank is 4x2x2.5(Height) with a cabinet. It would add up to roughly 4.5ft high for that pump to power. Keeping goldfishes. So should I give this pump a miss?

U will def. need a bigger pump...
Cause of a nearly 5ft headloss...not including any elbows if any.... u can try an eheim 1262...
sucks power, but the headloss is alot less as compare to other pumps.

Is not always the flowrate that is most impt. Headloss of pumps is very important too..

Thanks Yuna.

Seems like I need to budget for 1262 as I check online the pump costs around 240 and above.

2 red 2 black Orandas, 1 Ryukin and 1 lionhead.

Might wanna throw that feeder goldfish and sucker fish that I've previously isolated in a big guppy plastic tank.

Have a plan to introduce 1 - 3 more maybe lionhead or side view ranchu?
