I am getting in a wave maker sometime this week and am going to hook it up to my two PH
that I have in the tank. Both PH
are attached to the top right and top left on the back of the tank. Right now one of the power heads points toward the middle of the tank while the other one points at the opposite PH
(blows over the LR
). I was thinking about changing the flow so that both PH
point toward the middle of the tank. Only problem is that now I have nitrogen bubbles forming right in the middle of the tank under the DSB
. It is right were both PH
flows would intersect and I am afraid that it would blow the sand away and release that gas. Would this cause a problem at all? I do have my output from my sump blowing directly into the front glass so I guess I really don't have to change the flow on the PH
's. But I just thought I would ask.
Also, do the bubbles that from in a DSB
only form near the top of the bed? I don't have any bubbles that have formed deeper than one inch down. The majority are 1/2 to 1/4 inches from the surface. Is this because the DSB
is still relatively new? I am seeing a reddish brown type of algae under the sand where the bubbles have formed. I am assuming this is cyano
and is natural.
Thanks for the help.
