Hi everyone,

I am new to the saltwater hobby. I have been keeping a 25 Gallon Nano tank for a few months now. However I have been confused from the start on flow. I have a rather large rock setup in the tank. And I have angled some powerheads to send flow into the center portion, behind the fixture, and infront of the fixture. Along top of the main return pump flow. I haven't had any major visible issues with my flow, but I'm wondering if I have an unnecessary amount of flow in my tank.

Wow that is alot of pumps. If the fish seem happy then more flow is good but I personally would just stick with 2 pumps. One to hit down low and one for surface agitation
