LOL My clowns are loving the flow in my tank LOL. Like 3800gph of it.

And yes, 2 750's is good for your tank length, 4 feet is 4 feet. A 55g is also 4 feet too so keep that in mind when reading the specs.

I wouldnt steer you wrong girl! LOL

lol i dont think a Navy SEAL could swim in that tank, and add a 90g to that 4ft list
ok 345 + 1500 = 1845 gph thats still more than i want to swim against

True that on the 90g, I forgot about those. lol I would probably recommend a 3rd PH for a 90g. hehe

Buffy, you are doing fine, I can't wait for the rest of your stuff to arrive! You are so set it's not even funny. Stocking will be right around the corner. LOL

Seriously though, you have everything covered for a top line setup. I'm actually a little jealous.

In salt I have found it's better to as far as you can afford as getting sub par equipment is just a waste in the end especially if you intend on keeping up with the hobby. I have a box of stuff I no longer use or never did use that I though would be a good deal. LOL Cheaper is not always better in the long run.

Buffy seems to have a passion for fish and I think it's great that she can afford or barely afford (hehe) the stuff that can make a huge difference.

Which reminds me, Buffy did you get a refractometer yet? I have this link for a $30 one from ebay, I believe its the same model I use.

Are you going to vary the current with a timer or wave maker? It really helps a lot to vary the flow from one end of the tank to the other. A $50 power strip with a on/off timer will do the job. I used 2 of the #8 magnum korellias to give me a 90 second surge from one end to the other. My coral took off with a growth spurt, especially the softies.

Poor buffy, we keep suggesting all this stuff. lol

I keep mine running most of the time, I do turn off the one on the right on occassion to change up the flow for them. But yeah, those timer strips can be a cool idea. Maybe once she's up and running she will consider one.

Thanks for the to the Refractometer. The whole time I was using a Callibrated Hydrometer. But everytime I tested it was showed the same reading as the Refractometer but I still want to buy a Refractometer cuz it makes me feel more High tech lol.

You also don't have to get your hands wet and it's easy as pie. No stupid bubbles on the swing arm to contend with either. Next to my ro/di unit it was one of my best purchases.
