So I have a current pump in my sump and I need opinions as to hoe to increase my flow. I currently have a Hydor koralia 425 ad a small Powerhead about 200gph hooked up to a spraybar. But it's coming out so don't count it for now. The pump in the sump is about 400gph.

I have 6 options I can think of to increase my flow. In the mag drive part, it would just replace my current pump.

If you have any other suggestions please comment. Any suggestions or comments are welcome. :) and questions.

This is all in a 95 gallon.

A mag 9.5 would turn your tank over about 8.5 times an hour with an estimated 4' of head pressure and should eliminate the need for a powerhead.

I have a Mag 12 on a 65g through a 3 sided spraybar. If you use PVC to make a spraybar and paint it black to hang under the rim of the front 3 portions of the tank you have enough flow, eliminating dead spots, and you can diffuse your Co2 through it :) I wouldnt use less than a 12 on a 90g tho.
