Default Sump Pump for 4ft Tank - Oase? Jebao?

hi all,

recently, i got the Jebao DC9000 for my 4ft tank .. it was running well for a year and a half but this week i noticed that the flowrate has decreased...

looks like i may have to change the pump soon..

its been awhile since i kept up with the current models/brands and im not sure what to get as a solid replacement for this pump. i was thinking of the Oase Optimax and its touted to be made in germany..

anyone have thoughts on this? or is there another brand i should look into?

You tried removing the pump and gushing the propeller with strong water ?

If budget allows, get an Eheim. Costly at first but definitely reliable and efficient.

I am pretty sure many keepers here use Eheim.

I myself have currently more than 10 Eheim filters, including internal filters, external canister filters and pump.
