I am truly shocked. I just added a third Koralia 750 to my tank and... It looks great! I have direct flow to my acro and it pushed out a bunch of nasty that was stuck in the back of the tank. The only thing that might now be liking me right now is a few hairy mushrooms - flow is a bit strong for them, may need a minor tweak.

The craziest part is I'm thinking about adding another one to point the other way. (4) 750's in a 54 gallon tank! Wow!!!

I am thinking about adding a small outboard motor to my tank. A nice Evenrude. It seems you cannot provide enough flow, the more the better. And the currents need to be changing all the time. I finally put in a pair of Magnum 8 (the biggest Korellia makes) and alternate them on and off every 90 seconds. Creates a surge that the corals seem to love. Now I need to add a few smaller ones to create more flow around my elkhorn coral.

The tank looks great - fish are loving it and the corals seem to love the flow too. I ordered another 750 should be here on Wednesday. I need one to mix saltwater anyway, but I'm going to try it in the tank first to see what happens, then I may get another for the salt mix, or just grab one of the MP10's for now.

MP10's are on the wishlist.

Any ideas what type of coral this is - some sort of acro - growing decently.

The LFS called it green acro, but I'm curious.

Acro is looking actually better today. There seems to be polyps back in the top 1/4" of the tips. We'll see.

So it looks like flow was the issue after all?
