Post How many?

Quick!. How many hydor koralia pumps would be good for a 55g I have 1 right now looking for another one or 2?

Depends on what size you are looking at. FOWLR doesn't require the amount of flow a reef would so it's really up to you.

2x Koralia 3's sounds about right from what I've seen.

I am currently setting up two Koralia 4's, one Koralia 3, plus the canister filter and return sump which generates flow as well... However I have them all on timers so different flows/pumps are on at different times. This is on a 90g.

It's going to be reef soon so I just want to upgrade my circulation. So 2 #3 Koralia's for a 55gallon would work out ok?

Mike would know better than me, but I would kinda lean into what Justin says. It will depend on what corals (I know, Tank, I'm with you on what corals and which ones) and Justin's saying put them on timers (again, depending on what corals).

Could we mix and match Koralia? I have a #1 right now should I get a #3 and have a #1 and # 3 going at the same time? Would that be and Issue? I want to eliminate my Canister Filter and just run on Koralia and my Skimmer... If possible...
