    On a 45g tank and sump with about 10g of actual water volume, do you think the 600i will be a good fit or should I hold off for the 400?
    I have time before the tank will be running so waiting for the 400 wouldn’t be an issue if it’s a better fit.

    I had my SC 1351 (which I believe the 600i is the replacement for) on my Reefer 170 and it was great. Maybe a little overkill, but once tuned in, it pulled some of the nastiest stuff I've seen out of my tank.

    I wouldn't hesitate to put a 600i on a Reefer 170, but the 400i might save you a little dough and still do a great job.

    I also have a 1351 it skims great, do you have to keep something on the lid so the foam doesn't lift it off?

    You may consider skimming a tad "wetter" sometimes really dry foam can do that lol. it's impressive for sure but not exactly ideal

    I have a 1351 on a 75g and I've never had to keep anything on the lid. I keep the water level between the neck and the collar of the cup and empty weekly.

    My 400i has been on my new tank 9 days now and is still pumping loads of micro bubbles out... Anyone know how long this will last?

    And as for the 400's I have an order in progress, but I am not sure if there are any available in the states yet, I may be wrong though

    I’ve seen the 600i with sine wave, just wasn’t sure about the 400i as it’s a different pump
