    I have a couple questions I'd like to run by people for advice. Does anybody have suggestions about the best way to clean a used tank? It looks raunchy and I don't want to leave any harsh chemicals behind. 2nd question: How much flow is too much? I'm considering getting a second power...

I picked up a 40G Breeder for my home office (Where I spend about 12-14 hours a day) and am looking to start with a FOWLR and eventually shift to slowly introducing Coral over time.

    I have my vortech mp10 for my 110 gallon tank and thinking of adding a second powerhead.

Any advice...
