Hello, I’ll be setting up a 60 gallon breeder tank soon. I’ll start the cycle off with just the rock, sand, heater, and flow. I’ll be adding lights and a sump with a overflow box shortly after my cycle finishes. I’m not sure how much flow I should aim for though. I want it to be an lps and softie tank with no sps. How much flow should I have? Which powerheads/wave makers and return pump should I buy?

Thank you all for the help! Are the orbit 2 and 2k icecap gyre pretty much the same? I’ve already used ai products in the past and so I’m familiar with the app.

I love Gonis and Euphyllia. Maybe too much

I use a combo of Aqua Illumination Nero 3s on one side and a Jebao gyre on the opposite in my 90. Nero 3 or Nero 5 would work well in your setup. Used them in my 60 that I had.
