Question for all the #DSR folks! What's the best pump for a power filter? Which ones do you recommend? I want to build one, but all the pumps I own are closed on the intake, so I'll need to buy a pump.

As I am planning on running the EZ method, I’m quite curious about this too.

can one just use any old return pump or power head? Or?

How big is your tank? I'm thinking I may go with this one. I've got a 50g. I'm also considering running 2 of them. One in the tank and one in the sump.
