Owners of WB MP25, what are you using for flow?

I have a sicce 1.0 w/ random flow nozzle as well as a Jaebo SLW10. With a barebottom base. I have a lot of detritus build up, which I think is leading to green hair algae, and some other sheets of crap on the glass and bottom.

I also saw some bubble algae, which I think I removed. I'm wondering if I need a 3rd powerhead. I almost think 2 powerheads and a return in a 25 gallon is ridiculous.

Thank you in advance!

In my 20g nano cube I have a jebao ow-25. The jebao 10's are not enough, imo.
I run the 25 at full power in wave mode. Plenty of flow with no buildup of debris on the BB.

First, thank you very much for the reply and taking a picture!!

1. I notice your WM is just below the weir. Is that a new placement for you? I would like to know if that is a good spot for me to try as well. Although magnet placement will be interesting as I have an intank caddy, but I think I can do it.

2. Your barebottom looks spotless!!
-Was that after you just cleaned or is that the way it looks all the time?
-Would you sure your maintenance scheduale? Perhaps some of the tools you use? That would be very helpful!!!

Thanks again!!

I do not do any cleanimg except for the glass.
It was the best spot for overall flow. Not alot of room in a 18" cube.

I do 10% WC on all my systems once a month.

Not much maintenance except to clean the glass when needed.
I change overflow cup filter floss every few day.

I run 1 cup rox carbon in a mesh bag. Its alot but with no other filtration it has worked well.

3 baskets, 2 with eheim substrate pro and 1 with matrix.

I dose esv 2 part and dsr ez trace daily.

How do you take care of your tank after the storm? As the electricity and WiFi come back on, how do you get your tank back to normalcy?
