Yea id love a nice MH

I should get that Koralia 1 back in the tank I guess shouldnt I? Do you think my live rock rubble will cure without flow? I could stir the water a few times a day.
I just dont want to have to spend another 35$-$40 for a powerhead that I wont need. (My little 20g is looking cluttered with all the "stuff" in there such as powerheads,heater, thermometer, algea scrubbers, filter input and output, and my eggcrate chaeto holder.

is not easy. And then Id need 30 of them with some other colors mixed in
