OK... Finally gotten the tank (90g reef ready AGA) with the sand in it and filled with RO
water (those things take forever to make water!).
So I crank it up and begin to salt things and get that whole thing going..
And I have a little too much water in the sump, so the skimmer isn't hitting my foam bubble diffuser brick thingy, which is causing alot of tiny bubbles in the water.
Those bubbles are handy at this point tho, because I can see how the current is flowing through the tank.
So the setup is 'stock' reef-ready. Two 1" pipes - one return and one drain, wet/dry bio ball thing, return pump is a mag7 and the end of the return pipe has a V on it with two fan like heads shooting water out across the top of the water.
On side of the V is pointed towards the front, one towards the right side of the tank.
In watching the bubbles/salt when added, it appears that the current is not 'dead' in any place, but how do I know if I have enough current?
I really don't want too much machinery in the tank at all really..
And what I do add I want to be able to hide somehow.
The tank is visible from the front and the back, so no hiding gizmos on the back of the tank.
Any advice for a newb?
Thanks in advance.
(sry for long post)
