Sounds about right.
You could also look at the Jebao wp10 or wait for the new Bubble Magus w20. They are both supposed to be amazing.

I agree. Get at least the one 425 koralia. Those 240's are about worthless. IMO, 2 of the 425's wouldn't be too much. Return the wave device. It's not necessary. Aiming 2 power heads at each other will make random current anyway.

You do not need the 90 degree optics. I didn't even need them for a 30" deep tank. 120 is fine. The reef breeders unit is basically the same as the ones on ebay. The only difference is the name. They have the same guts.

Seriously aiming them at each other will randomize current? I would have thought that it would keep the same path constantly. That's good to know!

If they are not glued, do exactly that, assuming you don't like the look with them on. And as for the random current, you will see what I mean when you hook them up.

Well for the current, here it's a bad drawing but it explains it:

When the flow meets, it pushes each other outwards in order for more to get through. If you push you hands together enough to a point where there is too much strength, they'll start I shake and then you will burst apart. Make sense?

I just want to double check... Two 425's with my aquaclear 70 will not be too my flow for softies and Lps? I appologize if I sound redundant but I want to make sure I get it right the first time. Lol

I had a lot more flow than that in a 30 breeder, but have never actually kept a 20, so I'm not 100% sure, but I do have a smaller Koralia nano PH here and I seriously think it's so pathetic I can't find a single use for it. I just don't see how the 240s are going to cut it.

This is the beginning of the build. 20 gallon tall with freshwater still in it. Tonight I'm going to empty it out completely and wipe it down with a vinegar/water mix. Hopefully get one coat of black paint on the back.
