Hey guys looking for a few pumps for my 8ft 300g. What are some more affordable options out there?

I ran 2 gyre xf150 on my 300 and loved the flow.

Here’s a little vid of 1 gyre prototype going against 2 mp60 on my 300

I don’t think ”affordable” is a good idea. I’d go fro something that will last you more than just a few years. If you are growing SPS start thinking upwards of $1k. Your options are tunze (pointable). Neptune or Ecotech (less visible) or gyre (less money ,more mantinance)

I'd stay away from affordable. Once you go big, affordable is out the door. I'd start with 2 MP60s, one on each side, and then go from there.
