I just got a circulation pump that moves 1300gph

Since I just got a circulation pump that moves 1300gph, should I need another one for the other side?

Depends on the size of the tank. A 1300 is alot of flow. lol I have 2 1400's in a SIX foot long tank.

Just keep it directed so it doesn't blow sand around and try to get it to flow everywhere if possible. LOL

I'd prob still add a small one on the other side. I have a 1050 in my 55 as it is cycling. In my 36 I have 2 750s and a 550. I'll be adding the two 750s to my 55g, one on each side, and using the 550 to mix up saltwater.

So that'll be...2500 for my 55g.

I thought that I could probably use a smaller gph unit for the same thing.

Thanks
