Pumps came today...go figure but I am glad . I got them installed and man oh man I wish I had tried dc years ago . They are so quiet , no sound at all from tank except the small trickle of water going down emergency drain and that is negligible . I have then running at 55% so should be around 450 gph each. A lot more than the ac pumps were doing .The display says they are using 16 watts each . If true they should save a lot of electricity over the long haul . It took a little fiddling with , but I got them balanced and right amount of water returning to sump when pumps turn off . The pumps have a feed feature which turns them off for 10 minutes and then back on . Here is a pic . Need to do some wire routing , but got late tonight . I will finish up tomorrow .
My wife says if I get one more aquarium she is going to leave me . I sure am going to miss her fried chicken .
