Haha I'm a tad bit confused but I'll go and ask for "light diffuser". When I do it I think I'll make a video on YouTube on how to do it because there isn't much on the Internet. I just can't get myself to pay like 70$ for something I can make for 10$.

Here's how my power heads are set up:
The koralia is in the front to give the corals flow
And the rio 600 will be at the bottom behind the rock work preventing dead spots back there.
Does the outflow of the return pump give much flow? Is it it like a powerhead?
Gracias

And thanks Adam for the advice about the algae magnet for the koralia!

Will the rio 600 and the koralia nano be enough flow?

Lol you can make like 4 of those racks for 10$. Np on the magnet btw. I would mix the water and put it in gallon by gallon. Make sure you have the sand in first though. Fill it halfway and put rock in. After you like the structure of the rock fill it to the top. Also, to reduce the cloudiness, put a bag or plate in the Sandbed before you put water in.

well we try rd, but your pretty adamant about sticking around.

they return pump is kind of like a powerhead, at least it does everything that a ph would do.

to fill, put in your water, some base rocks, then sand... I have a link for using a bottle to put in your sand around here somewhere, it was just workign great for me but took too much time to reload the bottle and stuff while taking care of my kid. then set up your rocks and add fish simple right?
