Hi all anyone heard of/use these. Lad at works dad selling his 6 month old one for £40. I have a reefer 350 and wondering if worth buying as a spare/backup realise its 5000l/h. His parents have decided to retire to portugal so breaking down his system. Thanks.

I haven't used that exact one but Sicce is a decent make.  I had a different Syncra pump (one of the nano ones) and it was perfectly fine. I'd say it's about as good as Eheim or Tunze.

I guess 5000 L/H is probably about right for your tank?  At 1.5 m head it will probably give 3500L/h or so, which is about 10x turnover.

I've used the 0.5 Sicce Silent and love it in my Fluval Spec 3. Moves a lot of water and is silent. really good brand. I do find that the pump runs kind of warm however. Bonus for me in the Pico as it means I dont need a heater :D
