    Yes, should be a good pump for the job.

    although in my hands, the AM1000 reactor itself cannot keep the pH sufficiently low... I need the addition of the rhinox difussors.

    Tom is clearly better used with this reactor, but I'm not sure a 79gph pump will be enough for the AM1000 on a 80gal tank. You'll need a high bps count on the AM for your tank. With a 79gph pump a build up can occur quiet rapidely

    317 gph seems okay for an 80 Gal tank with added flow from a filter/powerhead etc.

    should i run the pump before or after the reactor, i tried both ways, if i run it before the i can de-gas back to the reactor, the disadvantage in this way is the tubing more likly to kink leaving the pump back to the reactor top, if i run it after less tubing but can only de-gas back to the tank, any thoughts?

    I don't degas and it works like a charm. If too much gas builds up, then reactor is unable to keep with too much CO2 or maybe not enough strong pump.

    If you like still to degas, better will be in reactor of course. Maybe try to better adapt your tubing path to avoid kinks. A photo of your setup could help us to advice you

    I've bought an eheim 2217 as prefilter and pump for the AM1000 and is strong enough for it. I recon that a 2215 will do the job as well.

    I think the 2217 is rated for around 300 gph.
