Currently revamping SETUP what powerhead/flow type is everyone running in the waterbox 150.5 mixed reef mostly LSP at the moment

I currently have
Nero 3 and 5. Running at the 5 @60% and 3 @ 70 % both on random!
Keeps everything turned up
Looking to add one more, but debating if I should go with the gyro from AI or just add one more Nero 5! The flow in tank seems fine for now but once everything is starting to grow out!

I like the gyres personally they move a ton of water very gently. I run 2 ice cap 4k gyre’s and 2 mp40’s on my peninsula with all the flow on the overflow end! Keeps my tank clean looking and the end view open without wires or pumps etc.

I'm thinking once all the frags grow out I'll need more diverse flow and didn't want to add more once it's established fully! Was my thoughts

Thanks for the input in leaning towards the gyres

Ok, I had some concerns of too much flow.
I add flow as needed.
Just recently, I added one small Jebao whose job is simply the flow for my torch garden.
You certainly can add as you wish as long as it’s not overly hectic.
