All right, I have to use a different site for the skimmer any way, so I may as well do the same for some other things when it is advantageous.
Hmm, I will just move the pump down to the quiet one 2200. (was going to use a 3000 before)
Now that I think about it, why would I need a huge amount of gph
, 300 is quite a bit for the water volume, turning it over almost 6 time each hour.
All right, I will just focus then on positioning the power heads so that the water is circulated as much as possible.
The reason I was concerned for the feather duster was I read this (quite amusing actualy):Pincushion urchin taking my Feather Duster on a rollercoaster ride
This was the top I was going to use: Aquarium Hoods & Canopies: All-Glass Versa-Tops
but I'm not sure it is wide enough (for the light you recommended that is)
