Pump for a Plant Tank Wet/Dry Filter...


I have been lurking for a bit trying to get enough information to start my
new 75G plant tank. I am really enjoying the lively and informed chat here.
It is hard to imagine how folks set up a complex tank relying only on LFS

I bought a used 75G tank with a nice wet/dry filter but the Supreme Mag
Drive pump is noisey. It seems to have cavitation noise which is getting
tiresome...It is a Model 5 which I am guessing puts out 500gph at probably
a 1' head and maybe something like 300gph at 4'.  I would like to replace
it with a new pump which will work for my current setup, a soon_to_be
heavily planted freshwater tank. I could use some suggestions for tank
turnover and also for a quiet dependable pump. How about a Rio 2100 or an
Eheim 1250? Right now I am tending toward the submersible type... I know
that the Quiet One is a winner but I am afraid that the output will be too
much. I am not trying to create a Rocky Mountain stream theme :-)

Any ideas are appreciated...
