I used short pulse for a long time. I thought it was great until I tried out some of the other ones. I made adjustments to mine and it is on a schedule where it goes into different settings through the day. Reef crest puts out a ton of random flow. Moves a ton of water. I believe that is yellow...I don't remember what pink is but it moves water too.

You are correct about yellow = reef crest. Red is long pulse maybe? I agree, it does move a ton of water.

I know the mp60 in my 180 gal in reef mode I ended up setting the max on like 7 or 8. Anymore than that and it would move rock scape.

Ok so I'm looking at either adding another mp10 and putting the Mp10's on the left and right side back walls withe the Mp40 in the middle. Or is 2 Mp40's, one on the left and one on the right, the better way to go?

I see what you mean. I set mine a little lower than 100% because my Frogspawn looked like he was in a sport car with the top down doing about 80... Best way I could explain it..

Well you don't want that effect on your corals. The question would be how is flow throughout the tank?

Seems like the setting and amount of flows good right now. but without the Mp10 on the other side there is no movement on the right side of the tank.. Even when the mp40 reaches the highest point I set it to. With the Mp10 there is a little movement on the right side. Doesn't seem to have any dead spots in the tank with both running
