Amount of flow in a sps
At the moment i have a 100 gal sps
dominated tank which at the minute has 2 x 6000 streams (7000l/h each) controlled by the multicontroller. And a deltec hlp 4040 (running at 2000l/h). And this gives me a turnover of around 25 to 30x. But i am going to up this by adding 2 6100 streams which i am getting second hand. Which if everything is running full blast will give a turnover of over 100 x . I am going to have the 2 6000 under the rockwork so to keep the detrious in suspension and then have the two 6100s in the back corners of the tank.
But i am thinking would it be best to acclimatise the fish and corals to the extra water movement, by using the multicontroller and having it on a low setting and then up it by 5% a week, or something like that.
What do you guys have as turnovers,i know this isnt a good way to judge as you should be looking at random flow etc.
