I’ve decided I want to run it bare bottom to help with the flow within such a small aquarium but I’m unsure if I should get 1 or 2 MP10’s. What do you think would be best? Would 1 be good...

    Fighting Conch in bare bottom

    So I have a bare bottom tank so one day I can have encrusting corals all over the bottom. But for now, it's just bare bottom. I am a big fan of the fighting conch, however, I don't know if it would do well without sand. Can someone confirm this?
