I agree about the hanging on the back filter. I was just wondering what specifications I need for it if any with the Africans. I know the power usually needs to be doubled for a saltwater. I also didn't know if I needed a circulation pump for them or not.

A aquaclear 110 would do the trick IMO on your African tank. It gives you many options for media and such, also a small power head on the opposite side IMO would help keep debris from settling on the ground, if you see your fish struggling then just return it but I doubt you'll have that issue. My fish swim into the flow at times. It fun to watch a bunch o fish all facing the same direction and sitting still as they swim against the current, I use one on my 75g African tank along with an fx5 canister and a aquaclear 110.

Okay. Do they need sand or gravel?

Again, you do know there is a forum for this. They can better answer your questions and assist you. I would imagine an administrator would move this thread soon.
