    Turbelle Stream 6060

    Would this be too much to add to a 90 gal? The return from the sump is about 775GPH.

    Thanks
    Andrew

    I dont think so.. What kind of substrate do you have, A friend was running 2 on his 150G.. and was allways cleaning his rocks becouse of the South Down.. So he has down graded to just 1 on it.. works much cleaner!

    About 1" of sand. I don't want the fish to be blown around too much. The return pump alone doesn't seem like it would be enough, but I don't know if it is worth it to just add a Maxijet 1200.

    I tried really hard to put the 6060 in a 75G. No matter were I put it, it would blow sand around or suck air from the surface. But I know people that have had success in 75g. So I would say 90 is possible.
    Wish I was closer I could let you test out mine

    For the cost.. Why don't you just pick up a new or another return pump.. Pick up a Surge 6000 they are around $100 does somthing like 400GPH at 5 feet..
