I'm setting up a 135 and have a 950 gph pump tee'd into two 3/4" returns. Still deciding how to approach the CO2 reactor!

Another vote for Sicce here. Mag Drives are bulletproof and not that loud, but definitely not the quietest out there. DC pumps are certainly quiet, but the reliability isn't there - I've seen too...

Just FYI, the difference between the pondmaster and classic is the length of the power cord. Pondmasters will have a much longer cord.
