I am guessing you are referring to return line and something like locline?

Probably the easiest thing to do is make a "U" from PVC to hang over your tank and put a locline nozzle on the end of it so you can aim it where you like to control flow.

Loc-lines are great but you could also just T off the return to two Directional Return Spouts on each end of the tank.

That kit is fine for surface agitation but will give you very little current. If you have or get any moderate to high flow corals you will probably still have to supplement with a ph or closed loop system.

Sounds good, I was thinking of getting the Customflo system to do a closed loop myself. I like the clean look of it
