The Move

Well I spent the majority of the day moving and redoing electrical. Running to the store, running to the other store, restocking, blah blah blah. I picked up a 12 lbs rock yesterday and a 13.5 lbs one today. I'm pretty close to 40 with the other rocks from the 10g. It's exhausting cause of all the thought being put in and other shizzle. My HOB leaked, I'm looking at the tank and I keep hearing this tick, tick, tick, tick. The HOB is leaking right on the timer and it's actually a sizzle sound. I caught it in time and no problem, I even saved the timer, cause 'Darn it, I'm Good!" Here's some pic's:

The final look

So here's the tank in place and then filled up with the lights cranked. I wish you guys could see the piece on the left. It's like a pyramid but this spire look is awesome. Check it out:

Moved a good portion of the LR from 10g into the 40b. 10 is catching minimal light from the light over the 40. 40b looks good so far but numbers are a little low. Moved over 3 corals: Candy Cane, Red Mushroom, and Zoa's. Also moved 3 hermits and 3 snails. 1 drop of Iodine and 2-3 caps of 8.4. For now Lights are set at 7 hours :15 Minutes, Equal. At least until tomorrow. I need to get the timers dialed in and the equipment all connected.

I'm at 1885 gph for flow, I know the recommended is 30-50 times the size of the tank. The current looks fierce. I've got the one PH moving 1585 gph and a 300 gph HOB. Anybody think this is too much? I've got the PH pointed at one of the bigger rocks to help reduce the movement. Thoughts, opinions, experience?

Since you using the hob I'm sure you should have enough suface agitation so that's good to go. What powerhead are you using? It should be enough flow for the tank but I would have went with two powerheads like 2 Loralia 750s so I can direct the flow a bit more.

High Flow

The PH is a 'Sun-Sun, Super Aquatic Wave Maker.' It's pretty big and WOW, it moves water around! I've got so much agitation I see 'Tiny Bubbles..." I forgot to mention the PS, but it's only 50 gph. It's an in-tank Hydor Protein Skimmer.

The PH is a two unit piece but the pieces are fused with directional vents for the flow.
