powerheads et al

decisions, decisions,decisions.....
I am not sure whether to get a bunch of mediocre powerheads and place them around the tank or maybe something with 1100-1300 gph and try to do a spraybar.
I am soliciting opinions on the pros and cons of either idea.

You might consider taking a look at the Closed Loop thread in the DIY section. They are very popular as a substitute for PH's in the tank. For larger tanks like yours it is probably cheaper to get one external pump and plumb many returns than all the phs you'd need.

I dunno about the spraybar...salt creep might be bad with it. Closed loop is certainly an idea. That will add less heat to the water too. If you decide to go with PH's, get Maxi Jets. They really are better than all the rest. Remember the Aqua Clear filter housing will fit them so you don't have any shredded anemones.
