I have a 60 gal
reef setup, and am trying to figure out a good flow rate. i have two pre drilled holes, one for out 1", and one for in 1/2". right now i have about 700 gal
per hour, which the 1" hose isn't handling and is creating syphons and sucking in air and making lots of noise.
the question is, should i just reduce the flow rate so the tube can handle it, or should i get an overflow box and make both the pre drilled holes for returns. i just thought more flow was better, but if it wont make much difference only having 600 gph
as opposed to 700 gph
, id rather reduce the flow and have the tank look nicer. thanks for your help!
