I’m keeping softies and macros so I can’t have a lot of flow.

Softies and macros like flow.

Softies need enough flow to properly shed and macros seem to grow better with good flow. Keeps them clean and such. I have a strong power head in my refugium just for the macro.

They tolerate lower flow and light but that actually doesn’t mean it is ideal.

I like adjustable poweheads like jebao if you can budget it. As your tank ages and grows, the flow needs will actually change (increase) as more corals and macro block flow. A controllable power head can grow with you and adjust based on your needs and aquascape.

If you feel a power head is too strong, that’s easily manageable but aiming it toward a glass panel to have it bounce off of or towards the surface a bit. This will slow the flow.

Ok this is what I have now, I don’t want a mini whirlpool in my tank so I had to pay 40$ more for a dc powerhead
Don’t forget calibration fluid

Is there any good options besides the 13.5? What kinds of upgrades could I make. I am thinking of getting a dosing pump for stuff
Why a dosing pump? For what? I have a Innovative marine fusion 20 which comes with pump and filter socks, and a media tray but no light and love it.
