Title: Questions related to power filters
Post by: MasterBlaster on March 08, 2020, 02:09:31 pm
Hello Glenn

I have a question related to power filters. I know how important you think a good power filter is to the reef.

I have a 200L tank with a sump. I plan to add one of the Tunze E jet in the sump. My question is if more flow is always better when it comes to power filters. Phrasing the question in a different way , buying the Tunze e jet 3005 will produce better results then buying the Tunze E-jet 1605 ?

Also I know you have a Tunze e jet yourself , what refill cartridge do you advise ? https://www.tunze.com/en/details/0870.000-cartridge-870.html or https://www.tunze.com/en/details/0871.000-cartridge-871.html ?


Thanks ,
Mihai

I would prefer the ejet3005, because the ejet1605 is not powerfull enough.

Even beter is to build it yourself with a  tunze 1073.020  pump and a perforated pipe on the intake

I use filterwool

Thanks for the info. Unfortunately I only have space on the vertical axis but not on the horizontal axis in the sump  and I cannot use a return pump with a siphoning head. When it comes to powerhead power filters are there any good alternatives to Tunze E-jet 3005 out there ?

For a small sump like that use the tunze 1073.008  (800l/h)
This is now used in a 200 liter display.
