ID:	88134 One of my concerns is flow. I have 2 247 GPH pumps on my 28 nano with about a 16 inch lift. If I slow down the flow will it effect the filter system?

Here is the final seahorse tank. Had to place artificial plant in front of water flow to keep seahorses from getting sucked against it

Have you considered including some live Macro Algae? In addition to being softer on their tails than plastic edges, they provide a better breeding ground for copepods, providing a snack between feedings.

LA Reefs is good, and Gulf Coast Ecosystems (live-plants.com) is excellent. Availability is a bit limited this time of year, but my order from GCE was superb, wonderful, and they packed it full.
