    I think so. Now the question is do I want to put it on my setup now or hold off for the 60

    thought I should mention here, both Jaebo DC pumps I bought failed in less than a year of regular use. I'm a fan of DC pumps, but wouldn't buy another one of theirs ever again. If you've got your tanks monitored well I'm sure it wouldn't be that big of a deal, but mine is in a display tank at the office, came back from a weekend to find the pump dead on Monday. (thankfully a freshwater, heavily planted tank) The other one failed where it wouldn't restart after any power loss unless you manually reached in and started the propeller spinning. (aka shut off to feed, doesn't come back)

    I dont trust any of the Jaebo products. you get what you pay for. Thanks for the tip.
