Hello,

I have a Maxspect Jump 2K for my 4x2x1ft tank. I wanted to have it at the end of the tank blowing towards the overflow, but the lighting support is in the way:

The only way I can think of to fix this is to get stronger magnets. The tank is 3/4" acrylic and the magnet that the pump comes with isn't quite strong enough to begin with. I can hide a stronger magnet inside the light support along with the pump's wires.

Anyone know where I can get reef safe magnets for this?


Thank you for your time.

You might try touching base with mightyMagnets.com. He has some strong neo magnets in his algae scrubbers. Not sure if he would sell a loose magnet or two, but worth a shot. However, they are expensive.

Thanks, I'll check them out.


Do I have to replace both sides of the magnet? Or can I just get a strong one off Amazon and coat it myself? If I can just replace the dry side It would be inside the light support, so no water could really get onto it.
 

Have you ever had a reef tank with no sump and how did it go?
