I would never recommend anything I havent done or tried before. I give my opinion based on what I would do.

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

Too much air circulation causes fish stress and can push any fish into any kind of corals, which can cause cuts .. Just something to watch for..

Thanks, I take opinions from everyone and then just do what I think will work best for me after a little research

If the powerheads are setup correctly there should be no sand storms or fish flying around. I find my 425 kinda weak in my cube actually. But its a shorter tank than a 29 regular. I keep mine aimed at each others flow and towards the front or back glass. You want a totally chaotic flow going on in there.

I've used purple up since its so milky to see where the flow actually goes and where it doesnt. You dont want any dead spots on the sand or rocks. And you also wanna make sure your corals are stable so you wouldnt' point a powerhead directly at the corals. My clowns LOVE to play in the flow, they do it all day in my 125g with 1400gph powerheads. back and forth all day long. LOL

It's like surfing I guess for them.
lol

Carey I would LOVE to see my clowns doing that lol some of the fish in my dads freshwater tank do that, it's so fun to watch

Ant, I think I'm gonna start off with one of the ones Carey suggested and see how it works out for me, cause I can get those for the same price as the smaller ones

Any suggestions on having just 1 powerhead in the tank?
