    Hey Ya'll! I have a 20 gallon long tank, with 28 lbs of what is now all live rock. I need a new powerhead/circulation pump. Right now I only have a cheap topfin that pushes 118 GPH. Im thinking I need something more around the 400 GPH range. Only a damsel, clown and few inverts right now. Any...
  2. Water movement (pumps & wavemakers)
    I'm thinking about adding a closed loop system to my 220 Gallon tank. Will not be drilled. I also already have a good wave maker. So my thoughts are just consent flow no random water moment. What i'm planning is 2 pumps, intake in the overflow boxes. The two output pipes would be right beside...

    I'm a newbie (8 weeks) with 3 blue damsels and 5 narcissus snails. I purchased an Aqueon 950 for my 60g and am concerned because the damsels (larry, curly and moe) seem to be struggling against the current this pump produces all the time. I purchased this particular pump based on the specs for...

    I have (1) 500 GPH PH in my 29gL tank. It is re-arranging my sand and everytime I relocate the pump it moves sand in an other location. I know many ppl dont like/have sand but I do like the look of it and would like to have it though, I may have to reduce the amount. I can't imagin getting...

    I am going to be starting my first tank and was hoping for suggestions on what to use for circulation. It is a standard 29 gallon tank with a marineland emporer 400 power filter and I'm leaning towards a Reef Octopus skimmer. I was looking at 2 jebao wp10 or 2 hydor koralia nano 425s. Are...

  12. The THINK Tank
    I was wondering if this is an already attempted idea->. I have an 110 gallon display and a sump that constantly has about 15 gallons of water in it. So a total of 125 gallons. Water is circulated from the display to the sump with skimmer and then back to the display. What if I had a line in the...

    Hey guys for my circulation in my 180 gallon reef tank I will be using two Hydor Koralia Evolution 1500s and two Koralia Magnum 2750s. As much as I would like to use a wavemaker, particularly the hydor smartwave that is recommended for use with the koralia pumps, I keep hearing how the constant...

    So I have been playing around with my power heads over the last few weeks in my 33 gallon tank, trying to see where my corals seem to strive the best. Ive read so many contradicting posts and articles on the internet which makes me think placement is going to completely depend on tank size...

  17. Water movement (pumps & wavemakers)
    I currently have a Hydor Korolia wavemaker, and I have a Hydor Korolia powerhead circulating water. It is running through the wavemaker, but set to always on since I only have one pump. My concern is that when it is set to the wavemaker setting, it clicks loudly on and off. Are there any other...

    I have read somewhere that for sps tanks, it needs around 30-40 times flow of total volume combining display tank and sump. Which means, I am planning a 40 breeder with 20 gallon sump so total volume is 60g. Now 60X30 = 1800gph. Which can be the total flow in tank. My planning is as below...
