Water pumps have a variety of uses, both general and aquarium specific. Finding the right one however can be a challange. For this reason I've decided to go over every pump I can find and give a detailed review of how it performs, how long the pump lasts and any other odd bits of info.
Submersible or external aquarium pump, which is better
The Hydor Koralia Evolution P29401 moves up to 850 gallons of water per hour, enough for a freshwater aquarium holding 70 to 125 gallons and a saltwater one holding 45 to 75 gallons. Using 5W of electricity to generate this flow, this Evolution pump offers a 20-percent improvement in efficiency over the previous generation of Evolution pumps. Connecting the Evolution P29401 to a timed wavemaker produces waves in the aquarium, and its magnetic base with an articulating ball joint offers versatile placement and water-flow direction.
While a submersible pump can be a complete breez..
The Hydor Koralia Evolution P29301 is a great choice for medium-sized aquariums. Pumping at 850 gallons per hour, the P29301 creates enough flow for freshwater aquariums with a volume of 50 to 90 gallons and saltwater ones with a volume of 30 to 50 gallons. It operates 20 percent more efficiently than the previous generation of Koralia Evolution pumps did, helping users to conserve electricity.
Aquarium Air Pump Reviews - Thoroughly Reviewed
First they left off the list some of the best aquarium and pond power head/ water pumps then their reviews were quite contrary to my extensive experience with these pumps in literally 100s if not thousands of aquariums over the years in my aquarium/pond maintenance business.When Sicce approached us about reviewing their water pumps we were a little bit hesitant; we already have nearly all of our sumped aquariums equipped with Sicce Syncra pumps. Our primary large fish aquarium, a 150 gallon display tank with a 30 gallon nursery aquarium have been happily running on a Syncra 3 for years so why change it? With a growing fish population already featuring a clarion angelfish and a neon hogfish a little extra flow through wouldn’t hurt but only if the living room display remains as quiet as before.
