Hello Everyone!

I'm in the process of adding equipment for my shallow reef tank and I was just wondering where I should place my 2 mp10's.

The tank dimensions are 3 x 2 x 1 (length x width x height). Originally I was intending to have one on each side of the glass on reef crest, but I have been seeing more and more people leaving their mp10's on the back to keep it hidden.

I plan to keep SPS on the right aquascape and nem's on the left side. As for return pump, I am running a Vectra M1 on constant mode as I've got a manifold so flow from coming up to the DT from that is very low.

What are your thoughts?

Hello,
I would try first to put them in the back of the tank. As you said, mostly to hide it.

Looking into your tank, I would only attention only to the location vs rocks... to avoid blocking completely the flow.

It will be a bit a try and error in the beginning.

I have a similar tank (but much longer). I place them closer to the bottom.

By the way, I like a lot. Congrats!

Good luck!
