  • Spend the extra and get this Gold Model By Dik Daniels on 1/28/2016

    Listen to me and this review. I tell it straight up, I'm a fish keeping OG. Get this Gold model over the cheaper Baracuda / Hammerhead pump. The difference is around $60. However with this you get the Baldor Motor. It is American made and runs 10 X quieter than the other model. I own both models. The other model loses significant head pressure around 2-3 years in age. It also begins to make noise and get louder and louder. the O rings and gaskets wear prematurely, causing leaks which can damage the floor beneath and the pump itself. Pay the extra money now or pay it later. If you have expensive stock like I do, and you're buying a pump this big and bad donkey, I'm sure you have a valuable setup and stock. Listen to me Luke…I am your Father…
    Go gold or go home. Cheers
  • One powerful pump By RJ on 9/3/2015

    I used this as my main pump for a basement sump. My display tank is 240 gallon on the first floor of the house with a 175 gallon sump in the basement. I have the pump pushing about 15' vertical and about 20' horizontal and I still have it valved back about 50%. Its only pulling about 2.5 amps at this level according to my Apex controller. It's also very quiet for a pump of its size. Even standing next to it, it's just a moderate hum.

can you tell me the difference between these two pumps the Hammerhead/Barracuda Hybrid - 6000/4590GPH vs the Hammerhead/Barracuda Gold Hybrid - 6000/4300 GPH?? Or can you give me some advice about a return pump I am building a 340 gallon mix reef and want my return pump to also run my GFO, Carbon, and biopellet reactor. Also looking for a pump that makes the lease noise since the pump will be sitting under the tank in the living room..
Question by: Roland Martinez on May 12, 2016 10:47:00 AM
Great question! I Have compiled a list of the Gold and Hybrid below. The main difference with these is the Gold has a longer lasting pump with longer 5 year warranty. As for flow and head height both will work great for your tank build! Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!

Answer by: Connor Johnson (Admin) on May 17, 2016 4:26:00 PM
I was wondering if you can use a reducer with this pump and go from a 1.5" pipe to a 1" pipe without any issues.
Question by: Harvey Emery on Jun 3, 2017 2:10:00 AM
You can use a reducer on the output, but keep in mind that this will increase backpressure and reduce the pump's output. You should NOT restrict or reduce the inlet side as this can cause cavitation and premature wear/failure for the pump.

Have a great day!
