great, thank you. Did you make the plate that the magnet attaches to go in to the water instead of 1/2" above?Got to Page 8 and it starts at post #150. I did make the bracket taller to get the pump lower in the water.
Yes exactly. It is not below the water line but its a 1/2" piece of acrylic so 1/4"below water line and 1/4" above water line. * these have to be the gyre pumps with the flow directors on top to help prevent air getting sucked in.great, thank you. Did you make the plate that the magnet attaches to go in to the water instead of 1/2" above?
Do you think that one of these is enough on the end of the tank? I was planning on doing one on each end but after looking at these, I discovered that I could buy 3 of them for about the same price as an mp60. So I wonder if 2 on the front, one in the middle of the back, and an mp60 in in each of the lower back corners could be more even flow than 4mp60 on the back and one xf350 on the front. It would be $700 cheaper, but also 30% less flow in the rear top of the tank. I've never had a Gyre so I can concept this thing all day long and still not really know what's going to happen.
HA no problem! Keep me updated on your progress. You should be able to 1/2" acrylic pretty easy. Do NOT go to local HD or Lowes for plastics 10X the cost.awesome, I'm so happy you were able to get this figured out in your tank first! Mine will be very easy to get to if I put the Gyres in the back, but I hate cleaning pumps so I'm already not looking forward to it. I'll start with the 2 Gyres in the front and see how I like them. It's time to find some 1/2" acrylic and start fabricating.
