For a reef that big you'll want around 9,000 gph of flow as the rule goes... Or 50x per hour.

In my tank I have two returns, a hydor 2400, a 1400 and a nano behind the rocks in the back. I'm even thinking of adding another

Just remember that I also have close to 400lbs of LR in there and that kills a lot of my flow

I'll have a good bit too... You saw the buckets I got... Lol... Also, I'm "baby sitting" a Niger trigger... He's beautiful. I want one, but I know the aren't reef safe. I think with this 180g, I'll want another fish. Thing seems so huge! Lol
