Question...I have three 1050's in the tank. I noticed the two firefish seem to be fighting the current, and swimming against it non stop...is this ok? Sorry if this is a dumb question!

Unless you have the powerheads pointed so that the entire tank is a whirlpool I think they will be ok. Very small fish I'm sure they will adapt and find a happy place to swim in that monster of a tank. lol

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Congrats on your new fish, I like Firefish! Nice choice! Now your cat has hours and hours of entertainment!

And the firefish get a work out. Tank looks good.

The fishies will adapt, you should be having a nice mix of flow so they will find their place. If the one pointing at the sand bed is causing any extra turbulence that you find could be causing an issue just adjust ot to maybe flow at ypur rocks. Either way your priority is keeping the sand bed clear of debris and allowing it to be captured by your filter.

I've been experimenting with different positions for my power heads lately and still think my initial thoughts and suggestions are better than anything I've come up with lately.
