I can't picture how this would work. The stream 3 cannot be articulated like a turbelle pump. It's a super powerful pump and if you use the flow rectifier it should have no problem pushing water along the 10' length... but only at the edges of the tank. Since you have 5' depth, you might consider 4 of the 6255 mounted on the back wall pushing towards the front. But again, I might not understand your plans here.Thanks MartinM,
For flow I’m mounting Tunze stream 3’s on one end and have them on at random flow settings.
Im not gonna have a bunch of rock in display and will only have a small amount of corals so they can fully grow out.
forgot to mention my kitchen island is 10 feet long by 4 feet wide. I took some pics to give some sort of size reference, my tank is 10x5Closing on the new house in a couple of weeks, rip up carpet in rec room (builder didn’t have my floors I wanted) hopefully get tank shipped out first half of September and have this thing is wet by October! Very exciting, finally coming together!
I’ve never been a fan of acrylic unfortunately. Glass tanks are my fav! I’m sure there are pros and cons to both, but ultimately starphire glass was the clear choice for me and this build.hard to imagine having a glass tank this size. I’d definitely go acrylic… hope all works out well for you. going to be a great build.
I'm with you I had a 225 acrylic and always regretted it. Too hard to clean and too easy to scratch. I am now a glass only guy.I’ve never been a fan of acrylic unfortunately. Glass tanks are my fav!
