Waterflow for a 110 high

Hello everyone,

I'm starting up my 110g high reef set up. I bought a Surge 6000, and using a refugium 29gallons. I was wondering if this is enough flow for the set up and if not what else should i consider? Any info would be appreciated.

Thanks

I don't know what it is either, but assuming it puts out 6000 l/h it won't be enough flow for your tank.. you need closer to 9000 l/h.
