    Pretty good deal! I have the XF130, and though it's not the newest one, it's really great. If I had a bigger tank, I would get another just to run in reverse...

    I grabbed one for a back-up. Used they often still sell at $150.00. Too good of a deal not to pass up.

    Is one unit enough for 150gallon mixed reef?

    You might even want the XF150, or the newer 200 series.

    I know.. I couldn't resist one as a back-up for that price. I'll probably kick myself later that I didn't order two.

    You can get a 230 for about the same price from BRS once you factor in free shipping

    Do you know the minimal flow on one of those? I only find the max.

    That's the pump only you're seeing. Not the full unit. The full unit is $289.00 for the 230. Also, I got free shipping on this discounted one.

    Yeah but I read 10% power isn't 10% flow.

    That's why I noted I think it's above 10% at the lowest. If you had an Apex you could do a flow test. :)

    Fmm doesn't do tank flow only flow through pump.
