Good call. I didn't even see that. I have 2 on each side of the tank and one in the middle pointing straight up. One in each side alternating will help a ton. Right now the flow is just hitting the front glass and dissipating.

Yeah, I'll try this again. That's how I had it before but I was getting a lot of detritus build up on the right side of my tank for some reason.

I get that on my left side. I'm considering adding a powerhead in the corner to take care of it. Rock placement blocks all the flow

Ok I rearranged my koralia's and some rock work. Any suggestions on more flow? I dont know if I should buy another koralia at 1400 gph or 2 koralia at 750 gph each.

Right now I have 2 koralia at 1400 each for a total of 2800 GPH.

Have you tried running both PH's at the same time I had much the same problem was using a wave maker and was'nt getting good flow I'm now running both (koralia mag 8's) and letting the flow crash into each other, nice random flows through out the tank

That's how I've had it for awhile now but I was advised to alternate the flow for better random flow. How long do you have the timer for? I had mine for 15 seconds running both PH and just switched to 15 seconds alternating the flow. I can't seem to figure this flow problem out.

Also now with the new rock work when I have both PH running I get small bubbles that form in the middle of the tank where the water from both PH's meet.

Not sure if these bubbles that form where the water crashes are good or bad.

I ran mine @ 6 minutes It's my understanding that with a wave maker you cut your flow in half as only one pump runs at a time I have my PH's on the ends of the tank pointing at the front center it took me a while to find the sweet spot

With 6 minutes don't you let the ditritus build up when it's off for 6 min?
