    Default Return pumps

    Hi am looking at getting a new return pump for my new 75 g with 33g sump was just wondering what return pumps u guys use and recommend. I would like to go dc pump just for the flow control. I heard they donít have as good of pressure
    If u add in a baffle to run reactors and stuff is this true ?

    DC's use less power and are dead silent, but the other stuff isn't really that important. They do have less max head than AC; just factor that in when sizing your pump. AC's can also be adjusted with a gate valve on the return, so pick what makes you and your wallet happy.
