Do you think these two pw's are enough for now? I mean we know I'm gonna try to do a sump and stuff but that has to wait.

I'll be back in a bit, gotta get the trash out before trashman comes, my can is full as I've been cleaning out garage LOL.

Oh, I see the PH you have now. I had one too. You can only move the flow from left to right not up and down. :-(

Was there an attachment or anything in the box? I thought they had one that could direct the water flow...lemme go see if I can find it. Not sure if it's for AC's or for koralias but I know I saw something like that somewhere.
lol

Personally, I would have gotten 2 koralia 750's but for what you have bought already you should be fine for a bit. You also have waterflow from the filters and will have it from the return pump once you get a sump.

I've been researching the AC50 and I can't find the diffuser for water flow. :-(

Since you have so many tanks to work on, I would probably save the AC50's for another build and get 2 Koralias. They have a suction cup AND magnet so they never fall and your fish and stuff can't be sucked up into the intake.

These are by far the cheapest I have found

I'd warn ya against the 1400's unless you have at least a 6 foot tank. LOL I have 2 now in my 125g and the fish just hate it, too much flow I think.
