Which tunze powerheads for a 110g rimless?

Hello all,

I'm interested in Tunze controllable pumps. My tank is 110g shallow wide measuring 50"x28"x18". I already have a gyre 250 powerhead but I run it at 30% because it blows sand away from the far side of the tank. I have SPS and am looking for more flow while keeping the sand in place.

Right now I'm considering 2 6040's. The price would run about $300 for the pair. I also like the battery backup option and will run these on a GHL P4 controller.

Should I go with the larger Stream 3s?






Suggestions welcomed.

Thanks!
Chris

I would to use the 6040's except if you need to get some flow to a dead spot, they are too small.

Thanks for the advice. Its difficult to tell one pump from another using pictures. Your help is definitely appreciated. I'm looking into the 6150s or 6105s per your suggestion on the private message.

Thanks again,
Chris

I really like your FTS.

I have a pair of 6015’s on my 135 and they are a really nice fit for my high flow demand SPS tank.

For a 90 or 135 depending on corals I would use 2 6095's or 2 6105's with the bigger pump for SPS systems. If you don't feel it is enough, try working with placement and flow settings on the controller first.
