I'm still working on the equipment list for my 55g FOWLR
. So far, I'm looking at a 48" (4) 65 watt Lunar Aqualight (260 watts total), a Remora skimmer, a Filstar XP2 filter (which will eventually be used only for water circulation/chemical filtration after I've got enough live rock), and a Hydor inline heater.
My main question now regards water circulation. The XP2 is supposed to move 300 GPH
. I've been looking at the Maxi-jet 1200 p.heads, which are rated at 295 GPH
. Would the XP2 and a couple of these p. heads give my tank enough circulation? Are the Maxi-jets good, or should I look into another brand? Do I need more or less circulation? Any thoughts or ideas would be greatly appreciated!
