I have recently started switching my main pump off for my sump during feedings by setting up a feed mode in my Apex. I have a significantly cleaner sump now, as I started to notice about 1/3 of the food would immediately end up going through the overflow and into the sump. I use a 15 minute feed cycle and it seems to be the perfect time limit for my community fish. I have a Rio 2500 pump and I don't think one shut down/ restart a day is going to impact its life span too much.
