Thanks for the update!!! ;)

That;'s great!
Definitely stop in - most stores that have the RFG for sale also have them in at least a few tanks, so you can see the RFG in action.

Hi Sir ... I've got a question and it's about the "ideal" location of the soon to be purchased & installation of the RFG nozzle exit. At present I've got the PVC return flow situated at the rear of the left corner of the tank and am wondering if this is the ideal spot ... for maximum performance?

Thanks in advance :)

That should work. Ideally you want to point the Nozzle at the center mass of the tank, or at least at the area you want to provide movement too. This will allow the flow, as it changes directions and spreads out, to fill that area with random, pulsing flow. Also, crank that pump up and provide as much flow as possible - the nozzles will handle it without creating a destructive force.

You might also want to check out these threads for examples of the our nozzles at various Flow rats, so you can get a better idea of what to expect.
