You'll need a barrel of some sort to store you RO water, and a heater and powerhead for that also.

personally if i already had the hydor 550 or 750 i would just use one of those to mix my saltwater with and go with 2 hydor 1150-1400

if i didnt already have them then i would just buy 2 1150-1400 instead, and maybe get something else to mix saltware with.

what about a qt?

What is a qt?

And i want multiple directional current. So i am going to have one pump on each side.

20x75gal is 1500.


plus with the return from the sump, the pump i have does 750gph at 9ft. So i will more then meet my goal of 1500gph.

From my personal experience of just having one power head and having much debre not moved around on the bottom of my BB tank i want to have multiple powerheads.
