Does it look like my frogspawn is getting too much flow?

I have a 20g high with 2 1050 gph eflux wave makers at 40% each. They are not point towards the frogspawn
Are they doing some sort of powering up and down? I suspect they aren't both running constantly at 40% power. So you may be fine especially with a tall tank. Is the sand getting blown around? Then you would have too much..

Nope sand is not being blown and they are set to wave which is a pulsating push from the wave makers.

With them at 40% it should only be a little over 800 gph?
800 gph plus your filter return would be a bit much at constant flow. If you are at a pulse, it's much less. Let the tank talk to you. If you start seeing bare spots or unhappy, stressed coral... Dial it back.

Yeah, it’s at a pulse every 3 seconds. Everything looks great I just didn’t know who those white streaks in the original picture were because it had too much flow.

Hard to say, the pic is so blue.

Some of my frogspawn have white/green lines on the body of the polyp when they are all puffed up. The green colored ones I think have it more. photo from Corals.com
