I think I saw something on this in another thread but I cant seem to find it now. So if I am being redundant in asking what may have already been answered then I appologize.
I am curious about how much water movement to have in a tank. More specifically a 46 gallon bowfront FOWLR
I have a really nice 400gph hydor korolia mounted to the side of the tank and it seems to make what "looks like" the right amount of flow for the tank. All inhabitants seem really happy at least.
But i thought I had read that it is important to have lots of flow so this evening I also put my penguin powerhead into the tank as well. Using both powerheads made lots of flow, in fact to me it looked like too much flow , so I removed the penguin and am again going with just the 400 gph
My question is, is this the right thing to do? I know they say having waves is good for oxygenating the water but my bak pak skimmer would be doing that pretty well I would think based on all the tiny bubble it puts into the water within it to make the foam.
Any insight would be greatly appreciated.
