A& d are the 750's and B&c are the 250's. I had a lot of dead spots which is why I did it this way.

Nice that's impressive handling a salty and be in college at the same time... I couldn't even imagine dealing with my 55 when I was in school... I actually have a 75 drilled with a 30 gallon sump I'm in the process of putting together. Still need a few more (expensive) things unfortunately lol... A good way to test flow is take a pinch of sand and see where it goes. If it all blows in the same direction it's time to tweak the powerheads...
