2-3 at the most. I think a Hydro Koralia 4 (1200 gph) would do good. Maybe point them upwards and at each other to create a slight ripple on the surface for good oxygen exchange and convulsing currents.

is that the new one for like 200 dollars?? lol yeah right thats so overpriced. i was thinking of two 750gph koralias. will that be enough in a 30 gallon tank? i plan to have them on the back wall pointed toward th middle and up so they create surface agiation and bounce off eachother

lol im pretty sure its even more than that, but it could definitely do the job by itself, and theres almost infinite customization when i comes to modes and power!

the two 750's sounds good, and placement sounds right as well, as chaotic(random is a better word for it) as you can make it, and of course surface agitation for gas exchange

lol well even if thats true, 200 somethin is crazy. So if i ordered thetwo thaat put out 750 gph thatd be enough? the tank is 3 feet long so I wanna make sure that they will reach eachother when placedat either end ofthe back wall and aimed to the top middle. basically they both have to push water about 15 inches before meeting

whoa, this is the rock from your BC14? are the fish still in there or what?

..at least the pH is around correct! though when cycling it doesnt matter whether you test your pH or not, as i just read it fluctuates like crazy
