Morning,
Unfortunately I'm not on here NEARly enough, but at the end of this semester (2 weeks!) i'll be much happier and have more free time. I currently have a 55gal set up with 3 D. auratus (B&Green, Costa Rican). I'm doing the waterfall/pitiful stream set up in that, and I'm using a ExoTerra Repti Flo 200 pump for this one...The end of the tubing starts about 10-12" higher than the pump, and this tank is doing great.
Although, i must say they are still fairly shy...any suggestions as to get them more active?

Enough with the OT ramblings of a student needing to write papers.

I recently traded my drum set for a 125Gal 6ft tank from a PhD student i work with, and as you might imagine, i'm having an absolutely wonderful time setting this up. I went for the GS-Silicone-coco bedding background on this cage, and I'm currently working on the adding of silicone & bedding. In this viv tho, my waterfalls (yes 2) are going to be about 20" higher than the pump. I just bought a repti-flo 250 and tested it out....water flow stops once i raise the tubes more than 14" above the pump.

SO, to my actual question: What pump would any of you recommend for a waterfall starting ~20" above the pump? Repti-Flow 350? Anything else?

Thanks in advance, and i'll be posting pictures of current viv and the one in progress once finals are over.
