Tunze 1073.008 = Amazing!

Pros: Quality, silent

Cons: None

These are amazing little return pumps. Using 1 in each of my 2 nano tanks and they are silent. Both tanks are in my bedroom and this is a big deal. The wife was ready to throw them out the window because of the return pump noise with the original pumps. But Tunze came to the rescue. As with any Tunze product it is if high quality. Highly recommend it. Happy reefing!

Great Little Pump

Pros: Good quality for a very reasonable price

Cons: None

Have used Tunze pumps for years and found them to be good quality. I travel alot so use two in my IM Fusion 40 tank as redundant recirculation pumps. This gives me peace of mind should, should one pump fail the other maintains at least some water flow. Have found that routine vinegar baths are needed to keep the pumps clean, but this should be done with any pump, do this about every 6-8 weeks and these pumps will last.

Silent pumps

Cons: none.

These pumps are so quiet, i have to see if water is moving to make sure i turned it back on. Very powerful and has controls to control the flow. I have one set fully opened and the other at half.

needs 1/2" plastic hose clamps

I bought this pump to replace the noisy return pump which came with my innovative Marine tank. The hose connections fit correctly but really a little too loose and I was concerned the connection would come apart. My advice is to purchase some 1/2" plastic hose clamps with this pump.
