I have a RedSea Max S-650 that I wish to add a chiller. I have read that it is recommended not to plumb it off of the manifold like the smaller tanks as the “pump is not strong enough”. Could I just install a larger pump and then be able to plumb off the manifold?
Run my chiller off the manifold also, using a Jebao DCP 10000 as the return pump.
Mine is the pre sock max S 650, manifold runs across the back wall from right to left.

What's the first thing you do when you see algae forming in your tank?
