    1x Mag 9.5 (return pump)

    1x Gen X / Mak-4 PCX40 external (drives manifold to the skimmer, 2 x UV sterilizers, PO4 reactor, chiller, and output to drain)

    2 x Ecotech Marine MP40w's w/ wireless wave drivers

    1 x aquabee 2000/1 (recirculating pump on the skimmer) if that counts?

    so i guess 5 total
