Question Too Much Current.

Today I received my 2 Koralia a #3 and a #2 and boy I think I may have 2 much flow going on in my system, My frogspawn anywhere I put it it's being blasted by current. You think I should use a # 1 and a #2? I had a #1 in my system and it was in great shape but i am just wondering about two much flow ruining my SPS and Xenia Corals....

Any suggestions on how I should position them?

Since you have a 55gallon, I saw the guy that sells frags put 2 of #3 into his 75 gallon. so I think you might need only 2 #2s instead of #3.

Sorry Frankay... and if I'm right, someone made a diagram, wasn't it u? put both towards the back on the left and right and shoot to the front that's how I saw them... there's a diagram somewhere in one thread, gotta search for it.

Yeah I have The diagram I though maybe there was a bigger way than the Diagram I had posted but I think I might just stay with it and find a better spot for the Frog Spawn.

It's tough to change out powerheads to something different once you start putting corals in the tank. I feel your pain... been there, done that.

I don't think you have too much flow, but it sounds like it could use some rearranging. Try doing some "bank shots" like bawel mentioned, off the ends or front corners. I like mounting the Korallia on the back glass and doing a double bank shot off the end glass and then off the front glass so it gets redirected into the middle of the tank.

I think a #1 would be too small for your tank. If you don't like the #2 and #3, then just go with 2x #2.
