Would a single EcoTech MP10 on one side provide enough flow for future coral and fish?

Thank you
Yes. Ive used only one on my 40 breeder and the fish still had plenty of flow to surf :)

Well I think it depends what kind of corals you want… might not be enough for high flow SPS. What are you trying to keep?

Flow doesn’t matter so much for fish, especially anything you’ll keep in a 30 g.

Agreed with this, depends on your coral that you want to keep. Softies/some LPS should be fine, SPS no, it will not be enough. Maybe birdsnest or very easy sps, but even then you'd probably have to run the mp10 at to high a speed really for that size of a tank.

I find flow.in cubes and especially small ones very tricky with a single pump. Run it a bit too high abd it's too much flow for corals in Front of it too low and u get dead spots. If u don't have a 3 side view in the tank and can pull 2 pumps that would be best especially if they run in sync so u don't blast the tank to have a nice overall movement.
Rockwork will have a huge say as well.
