Hi guys

I want to get a DC pump for my Waterbox Peninsula mini 25. I just bought a mightyjet and realised pretty instantly it wasn’t going to fit...

The dimensions of the pump chamber are;

80 x 118 x 400mm
3.1” x 4.6” x 15.7”

My question is are there any DC pumps that fit in that space that come well recommended? Or am I doomed?

thank you!

the 326 gph version doesn't fit?

Dimensions - 3.7" L x 2.5" W x 3.4" H

beyond that i'd just get a sicce one. why does it need to be DC? i think the DC options for nano pumps are pretty few and far between

nope, unless I were to put it on it’s side which I’m assuming is not a good idea! Was looking for a DC for more controllability, don’t want to put my hand in the tank to change flow rate and unplug it every time I feed. Are there any other pumps that have these features?

Once the flow rate is set you never have to change it again.

Set the pump up on an outlet with an on/off switch, like a smart plug or something.

According to WB specs, the pump chamber in the WB Pen mini 25 is 3.1"×3.7"×15.7" or 80 x 95 x 400mm.

I don't have the tank yet but I'm considering a Jebao DCS-1200.
This pump is exactly 95mm long.

So I would need to trim the inlet like this guy did for his Fluval Evo 13.5 .
Have you measured the pump chamber? If it is 118mm that would increase the options.
 

How's your tank currently looking?
