I have my pumps in series, and often turn one off, and have run it for months at a time with just one pump. Granted, D5B pumps are a different thing than the MCP series, but I've seen no issues with pumping, and it clearly picks up flow when I turn the 2nd pump on. I don't think it would be damaged because the impeller sits on a ball pivot, and simply rotates. It would see no more wear from passive operation (turning from the force of water on it) or powered operation. This is my guess, but so far, my experiences tell me it's likely true.

Thank you everyone for your suggestions/input. They all helped a lot. I think that I am going to just stick with one pump for now. I was looking at this reservoir, what do you all think about it?

Monsoon Series Two Premium DDC MCP35x Dual Bay Reservoir

If you have any other suggestions on reservoirs, I'd appreciate them. Please provide any reasoning along with your suggestion too.

There works great. My brother has one, but it is the one a MCP655.

Ah alright. It looks to be of a solid build quality. I have some of their compression fittings and they quality seems to be very good. Since your bro has one, I have a question about the installation. Do you have to completely tear the pump apart and remove all the housing, to attach it to this reservoir? Or do you just take the pump top off and attach it to the reservoir?

Also, how exactly does the pump work on this reservoir? From what I can see, the in and out side of the reservoir are not separated. It looks like the pump is just in the middle, but how does it actually move fluid? SInce the pump itself does not have an in/out for flow, it seems like it would just make the water in the reservoir swirl and not really move anywhere?
