    Fluval SP6

    Anyone familiar with this pump? Looks small, supposed to be quiet, lot's of GPH. Might just be the ticket for my closed loop!

    As I mentioned in my pm, I looked at them when I thought about changing out my reeflo.
    I found several reviews on reef central and all were good.

    Really good pumps with lots of flow, quite, solid built including connection areas, and able to handle back pressure unlike DC pumps.

    I almost bought one of these. I wish I would have, but decided to keep my reeflo pump.
    It's pumping about the same as the Fluval and I did get use to the motor hum.

    That's what I need to use it for, external closed loop pump. Sounds perfect!

    everything I've read about them says that yes they can be used external and heat wasn't a complaint I saw.
