Recommendations for 110 circulation please

Setting up my AGA 110 gallon tank (90 tall) in the next few weeks
and am looking for some input as to what I should be looking for
for circulation. Return to the tank is a Mag 12 with a small amount of head loss. Would love to get a wavebox down the road (not in the budget for now) but would love some feedback on some tried and true PH. Thinking about Turbelle or Koralia.???

Any feedback would be appreciated.
Cheers,

I have two of these in my 110 tall SPS tank for 2 years now and my only issue is the sand storms.

Their store says 1,200-1,400 GPH but I don't see how that can be true. They seem more like 2,000 or 2,500.


I used a mag 9 for a return.

read that article...saw the link here, not sure if it was you Lance
that posted it. Great article. Looking for some specifics as far as
what kind of equipment and recommondations. LFS has Turbelle and Korilia...wondering if these are a good choice or I should do
some more reading/research/ review searching.

I would get a pump similar to this thats a little overrated for your tank. These have a flow control valve and a duckbill tip that help you control flow and direction. Then if you want a koralia # 2 or #3 for spot flow in low flow areas.

Also these pumps i linked come in handy for water changes. Get a long clear tube that fits in the outlet tip and you can drain and fill from 6 ft away.

I have 2 sureflow 1600s on mj1200s on a wave timer in my 110. They work well, can be kinda loud sometimes.

Just returned a Rio that I had brand new as the reviews I've read
and a few people have told me they are terrible. My buddy had one on his Turboflotor and it burned up in no time. The reviews on this site say that they are a BAD pump. Looking to stay away
from Rio as I have already had a bout with them trying to get a needle wheel for my skimmer...end result no needle wheel
skimmer for sale....in my books already RIO = no good
