Now I need a flow answer. I have a magnum 7 and 2 1400's. Is that over kill for the 150g?

I'm running 2 1400's and a return pump that does 1500gph. My fish seem fine.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

My return isn't that high, was only for my 90g. My overflow can take 1800gph, but I think my tank is at 1000... Maybe less

Well, I'm getting rid of my tank. I lost my tusk and the guys in the DT have ich... again. I managed to kill a $215 fish. Guess I'm not as good with this hobby as I thought. I appreciate all your help and advice, but I'm walking away. Thank you for everything.

Maybe I'm playing the devils advocate here, but if someone wants to walk away to stop killing fish, why do we try and convince them to keep trying? Success starts with a state of mind. I had to walk away from the hobby for 7 years before starting back up. In those 7 years I learned a lot of things that have helped me run and maintain my tank. I'm sorry for your losses but you need to do what you feel is best.
