Flow question

I am in the middle of cycling my tank now but I am trying to buy all the supplies I need now for my future reed tank... What would you all recommend flow wise for corals like wall hammer and frogspawns? I will have more than that but I'm hoping those will be my centerpiece

Depends on the tank size. In a say 55g two koralias should be good, I was running 750's in my 55g. In my 29g I was also running two 750's as well.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

a good way to look at it is 10 X the volume of your tank

I run 3 500's a lot more than I really need but it works for me

1 on left side in rear close to top pointed to the right side of tank

1 on right side towards the front of tank pointed to left side about half way down from top

the last one is dead center at the top pointed at a 90 degree angle down

with the bow front it keeps water flowing in every direction
keeping dead spots to a minimum

every tank is a little different just experiment with the flow till your happy with it .
