So, i got a spare tank, and im thinking about turning it into a little sps dominant tank. Just to finally dip my toes into some sps

The main thing im looking for here is, i have a spare hydra 32hd as well, would it be enough on its own for this size tank, how high off the water surface should i mount it, and anyone got a setting theyd reccomend?

If its not enough on its own, i also have a prime 16hd that i could mount along side it if needed.

Im also looking at flow, right now i have a spare sicce voyager and mightyjet 326gph return that im looking to use, do you think il need more flow?

Im also looking to do a yasha goby pistol shrimp combo in the tank, will they be ok with the flow?


Thank you for you knowledge

Should be enough (the Nuvo 20 is fairly low). I'd start with 8-9" from the surface and go from there. I do like David Saxby's profile in the AI Signature section on their website.

My 20g nano cube, 18x18x18.
I run 2 16hds.
Your 32 should do well.
Im 10" off the surface.
I have a build thread for it also
You can pm me for info if you want.
