Which options?

Hi Roger, I'm going to be setting up a SPS dominant tank that is 64"L x 32"W x 28"T. I don't usually rely on much flow through the returns. Would I be able to get away with 2 6105's with the new wide flow nozzle and also considering the 6215 wavebox with them? The tank is 1/2" glass so the magnets would be fine and doesn't look like it makes much sense to go with the 6155s and would 6255's be too much?

Also, without searching all the threads and my apologies if this has been asked but will Tunze ever come out with backup battery system similar to what ecotech has for the vortechs?

2 6105's should be more than sufficient. I would use the included wide flow housings.

Regarding a battery back up, we don't make a simple plug and play unit, but we do have the 6105.500 safety connector. While we realize many people would prefer a plug and play complete set up, the cost of shipping batteries is very high and this also limits the flexibility. While the safety connector requires some wiring it should be within the means of anyone who has done any automotive or home electrical repair. You can not only choose a battery of the size you want for the run time you may need, but you can swap the battery, even lantern batteries can be used enabling you to keep running as long as you can find a working 12V battery. You can also use solar cells. You simply need a battery, a charger or solar panel and the safety connector for each pump (pumps can share battery and charger but each requires its own safety connector).
