Well clearflex60 is not quite the same. It's shore is 60, tygon is 55, and silicone is 50. What this means is that clearflex is not quite as stretchy but it also has a tighter bend radious without collapsing.

Personally id use no other pump than an eheim.

They may be slightly more expensive but in a folding box that may be left unattended for many hours you need reliability above all else.

Spending an extra $10 for peace of mind is well worth it.

Id also recomend you use silicone or if you can afford it tygon as they are so much easyer to use than cheap PVC.

I've got a Danner Mag Drive that's been running for 6 months. It only stopped working once, and only because the power went out. Magnetic Drive type pumps have only one moving part, so they are very reliable . . .

I didnt mention clearflex in my post as ive never had any experience with it.
If its as good as tygon (flexibility) and not as damned expensive then id get it.

Sorry for any confusion.

Dimm...

I have seen a few cases where those danner pumps have failed (usually by blowing there fuse) although they probably allot better than the very cheap looking no-name pumps they have at my local aquarium.

These looked interesting (if a little expensive)

Well not quite as flexable but doesn't collapse as easy and is still easier to work with then pvc.


As for the chillers yes very intersting. Makes you wonder why you would need to cool a fish to sub zero temps.

I have a via aqua 1300 in my current system. Works great, but i am kinda worried about it because i found in the instructions that came with it a warning "MUST BE RUN SUBMIRGED". I guess most people havent had problems with it, but it kinda makes me wonder.

How would this work as a Tank setup?

It would be KEWL if they had a Purple coolant

Sitting here thinking like Pinky, hehe. NO it's not going in the case
