For the Koralias, yes... it does make a difference. You don't want to run a regular Koralia on a wavemaker. Burns them up, from what I understand.

I personally wouldn't add anothe K-2. maybe a K-1. try putting the heads on the side glass so they blow more across the tank and collide in the very center front glass. I know they are more powerfull but if I can't run my K-3's like this because they make my frogspawn look like it is in a hurricane. 2 K-2's set up like this should be fine.

The diagram really helped me get better water flow. I think I can do better! If you look at the pic on the first page of my tank. My sump return is right in the middle. I am think of getting Loc-Line system running a Y split and pointing the water flow from directly in the middle to where the digram shows the two sump returns hitting the glass. Just that make any since? LOL! What do you all think of this idea!

That sounds okay, just remember that when you split the line you half the flow out of each side.
