i'm sick of the low flow of my stock return pump for my redsea max 130d.

I cannot for the life of me figure out how to adapt the current 130d equipment to work with it as return pump. Does anyone have any idea?

I'll sent pics, I used a different pump and a y fitting and get awesome flow now. Pump and fitting cost me about 60 bux total.

Until a post a pic, I used an aqueon aq1200 pump which fits perfect and a small "Y" fitting. Works great.

I've read about people using the maxi jet 1200 but never see pictures on how

It will be the same way. I just think the aqueon is quieter and had as a little better flow. It's also adjustable

Here's posting on modding a maxi-jet 1200 into a RSM 130. RSM 130d is maybe a little different not sure about that.
I have a Cobalt 1200 Italian made pump which is identical in everyway to a maxi-jet 1200 except way better built available with all the parts for in the box for $35 if your looking for a replacement pump.

Red sea came out with a pump upgrade.

I have one here I could be persuaded to part with, found it was blasting my zoas a little too much, so went back to the two individual pumps.
