I thought I had enough water flow for my setup but now I think I am a little concerned.
I have a 90G main tank with a 55G sump. I know the 55G is big but I had laying around so I converted it to a sump. It is holding probably 40 gallons of water as a sump. I also have a 20G long for a fuge.
The 90G is fed with a Rio 3100 (900 gph
max, getting probably 700 gph
), the fuge is fed with a Mag5 (500 gph
max, getting probably 350). I also have a Hydor 3 (850 gph
) and an ASM G3 Protein Skimmer with a Sedra 5000 (500 gph
Here is a pic of my sump setup...
I figure there is about...
150 gallons in my system.
and for flow I have about...
700 + (Rio 3100)
350 + (Mag 5)
850 + (Hydor 3)
500 + (Sedra on ASM G3)
Based on those calulations I have a 16x flow rate.
Should the Hydor and Sedra count in calculation?
Is this enough flow? If not, what should I add? Another Hydor?
