    I have a 55gal long tank, all types of coral. Right now mainly softies(Zoas) and trying some sps(birds nest) and Lps (blueberry leptastrea). It seems my Stony corals are having some issues and are not to happy. I don't think i ever thought about how powerful my wavemaker we're until I saw...

    Flow for lps and sps, is it the velocity thats required or just overall turnover? PLEASE HELP!

    Hi everyone. I made a thread the other day which looked at hopefully getting my tank to start growing some corals. One of the suggestions was to look at increasing the flow of my tank. I have a 180 gallon, 6 foot mixed reef aquarium. Filled with acros, euphillia, heliofungia plating coral...

    SEEKING ADVICE: Skimmer and flow

    SEEKING ADVICE: Skimmer and flow I own a gen2 bubble King 200 mini, which i've been thinking to use on my next build (75g display tank + 30g sump). In addition i'll be running a filter roller. My concern is that the skimmer is oversized and that i might be better with a smaller or simply run...

    Still struggling with overall flow.

    I’ve got a 90 gallon tank, It currently has mostly spa and lps, but it’s pretty mixed. I decided to try cross flow pumps and accidentally ended up getting two different versions, I purchased a cp90 (jebao cross flow pump) and then accidentally got an SCP 90, I literally for the life of me can’t...

    Sand Replacement Peninsula

    I’ve got a 200 gallon peninsula build I’m planning to transfer my existing Reefer 350 into. The BRS videos sold me on Caribsea Ocean Direct sand as I wasn’t a super fan of my current sand and I liked the idea of hopefully bringing in the bacteria from the direct ocean sand. Unfortunately, the...

    Small pump or wave maker for 25G Biocube?

    Hello ☺️ Just curious about recommendations for a small pump or wave maker for some more flow in the tank. Or if it’s even needed. I was thinking maybe an MP10 but it’s a bit out of my budget at the moment. Thanks!

    Its all about Flow.

    So its often said that too high a flow can be 'bad'. Yet when I've been in the ocean - at least often, the flow is far higher than anything we could ever achieve in our tanks. I'm not talking about aiming a powerhead 1 inch from a piece of coral and letting it hit it 24/7, but rather lets say...

    Gyre vs regular wave maker?

    I currently use an AI Nero 3 for my 25 gallon peninsula AIO. I am seeing some dead spots since my scape is a cove style, and some detritus builds up there. The wavemaker also channels the flow too much and blows the sand out of a corner until it’s bare. I’m wondering, would using a gyre...

    Is a Nero 3 suitable for my 20G tank?

    Hey all, I just purchased a Red Sea Max Nano, it’s a 20g AIO cube. The display is roughly 62L/16.5Gallon. I’ve finally decided on my powerhead, and decided to go a Nero 3. From what I’ve found, most people run a Nero on a tank my size at roughly anywhere from 2%-20% capacity. Just would like...

    Flow suggestions?

    I am noticing detritus build up on my sand. I have nassarius snails and plenty other snails and crabs on my clean up crew. I suspect my flow pattern could use some improvement. My AI Nero 3 is set to 1100 GPH for my 25 gallon AIO. The reason I have it positioned in the middle was because it was...
