Bulk Reef Supply - Saltwater Aquarium Supplies for Reef Tanks

This is my preferred aquarium configuration for all but smaller systems or specialty situations, and involves the use of both external and internal circulation pumps for added reliability. The configuration shown in Figure #4, is similar to Example #2, but has additional internal circulation pumps to supplement the single external pump. For even better reliability, or with a larger system, I recommend multiple external pumps as well. When using internal pumps the external pump(s) can be reduced in size (along with noise, cost, and power usage), since not all of the circulation requirements need be supported by a single pump. You also have more flexibility in supplying good circulation to the whole tank since there are multiple outlets directing the water. You may split a single pump's return and get a similar effect, but without the improved reliability and added protection acheived by using multiple pumps.

External Water Pumps for you marine, reef, fish tank, and freshwater aquarium.

Since external aquarium pumps have higher flow rates, you can use a single large pump to run multiple aquariums that share a common sump, chiller or by using a manifold to divert water to different equipment. You can control the flow to each piece of equipment using .
