  1. Hi everyone, Have just ordered a Laguna 2000 pump, rated at 7,600 LPH, it replaces my Tunze 3000 LPH in my 700 Ltr tank + 200 Ltr sump. It runs with just under 1.5 meter head, so expecting around 6,000 LPH throughput. Hagen/Laguna state it is suitable for 19/25/32/38 mm fittings. My intention is to make a dedicated PVC pipe return line, not wanting to risk using hose this time round, if possible. But I dont know what the 'ideal' size pipe to get. I suspect 25 or 32. Would running it with 19 or 38 place extra load on the pump? 38 seems like a lot of weight for it to lift, 19 seems like a lot of speed for that flow rate. Is their a formula to work out an 'ideal' pipe size for any given pump? It is good of Laguna to say what size pipes 'can' be used, I just wish I knew which size is 'best' to use. Any advice or tips are appreciated. Cheers.

  3. Ive grown up being told that 3cm is the size to reach before selling BN catfish, be it any type. I'm now at a stage that my peppermints are breeding like crazy, and by the time their fry are 1.5cm (in a separate tank) they have hatched another batch (in our community tank). My question is, what size is to small to sell? I understand when they have their egg sacks, thats crazy too small. But what about 1.5cm? They are bigger, eating solids.. Whats your thoughts? xx Cheers, BNgirl

  13. Hi people I will be replumbing my system in the coming months and was wondering what size pipe should I attach to the Laguna pump to get the most out of it.

Is there a guide to using a certain size pipe to a certain size pump to get most water delivery to tanks. Thanks. Mark.

  24. Hey all newbie here, Just got a 4x2x2 setup and want to keep just a single predatory fish in it. Just wondering what size of fish I can keep in this tank fully grown (ie like 30 or 40cm etc) as I want to keep a fish happy and healthy for its life time. Reason I ask is so I can start looking for fish that come in at or under the size limit for my tank.
