LOL. It's just a little guide so you can see the average head loss for each gph. It will differ from each manufacturer I'd imagine, but at least you can get an estimate. I figure I'm pumping like 1200gph max, since thats what my overflow is rated for.

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

Well, the lrge tank was....not a deal.
So back to my original 20 gal idea. It's been thoroughly cleaned and has sat dry for a week.
Ready to add water and sand.
Now...for cycling...
What is the best option? Get some base rock, a little live rock and a few raw shrimp for ammonia?
