    I recently bought some second hand equipment and just realised the eheim return pump has no rubber feet or anything so I think I might just get a new pump as I'm worried this could be noisy.

    I think I'd be looking at a dc pump that can be controlled. I keep seeing bad reviews tho so I'm asking for advice has anyone got any suggestions.

    My tank will be a red sea reefer 170 so won't be a massive pump. But anyone have suggestion on pumps and sizes I'd be grateful thankyou in advance

    Take a look at the jecod (jebao) pumps, I would think you would want something like the DCT600, 2000lph,
    I’ve been using one of these return pumps, albeit a bigger one for nearly two years now with no problems at all and it’s virtually silent.

    I use the ecotech vectra s1
    Surpisingly powerful for a small pump. Obviously usual high quality build and holds its value if you want to upgrade in the future

    I second the Jaebo return pumps .... I have had zero issues with mine and can't hear a peep out of it!
