Thanks for the links!
I do follow newyorksteelo. I just wanted to know what it was. Worm or something else.

Diatoms have started to show up on new sand. Bit late after 10 days or do.

its gas of some sort, he talks aobut it in his vid.

luckily diatoms are a good sign in this case, it means everything is moving like its supposed to. they go away fast.

Any suggestions on positions the powerheads and where do I point them at.

Appreciate any help.
I position mine to hit a tank wall and deflect making a circulation pattern. I never point them directly at anything.

Should I get him or no?

Lol. I had a weaker moment seeing him dance around. I know my 90 gallon is not big enough for him.

I have had one koralia 3(850gph) running and the return line on the other side. It's not enough water flow but everything seems to be fine.

Its fine for a fowlr but not reef. Actually, some softies would be good with it also.

I guess ur right.

But when I have both powerheads on with return pump( 850x2 + return rated for 900gph) it seems too much for hammer coral and anthelia's. Even the fish hide.

Let's do pics.
Ok with a powerhead and return.

theres no such thing as too much flow, just too much direct flow. your problem might be that they are pointing out in the open too much. try bouncing them off rocks and walls.
