Question Help me to choose a pump for Tunze DOC 9010?

Hi all,

I've just bought a Tunze DOC 9010 Protein Skimmer (for a 140G marine tank) so I'd like to know which pump should I use with it? Price is not an issue. I want the best. Do you think this skimmer will handle my tank nicely? I'm planning to have 2 Tangs, one Trigger, a Percula Clown and maybe a Morey Eel. It's a FOWLR tank that is still empty.

Thanks in advance.
Fabrizio

aquamiarine i have responded to 3 other posts of the same topic.for the future, 1 post should do the trick.

i strongly advise not to house 2 yellow tangs. 1 will become more dominate over the other. when dealing with tangs of similiar body shape/coloration either keep 1 or 3.

if price isnt an issue why not get vortechs? many different controls but i have heard the can be noisey if not lined up on the glass perfectly.
tunzes are also good pumps but hydor Ks would just as good. i think 2 hydor K4s will be fine for this setup. your going to want as little dead spots as possible.

how much live rock are you planning?

Thanks for answering!

Yeah, I think will get 02 Koralias, or maybe 3 if it's necessary. But that's only for the circulation in the display, right? What about the skimmer? I need a pump for it... Is the Vortech also a pump for skimmers/sump? The sump return pump will be a Quiet One.

No, I not put more than one yellow tang, he'll be alone. But there will be more tangs, is that ok? A blue tang + yellow tang + coral beauty + niger trigger + picasso trigger + raccoon butterfly + snowflake eel. I gave up on the clowns from now on...

I plan to get as much live rock I can as long as it doens't clog up the display... I understand these especies need a lot of space to swim...

Thanks.

The Tunze is a skimmer not a pump. He needs something for the skimmer.

Do you have any pump recommendation for my skimmer?

Thanks in advance.
