Question Coralife Circulation Pump Question...

I just purchased and installed a new Coralife CP1300 Circulation Pump. Now, I have a 55g FOWLR start-up and I am a total beginner waiting for my tank to cycle. I am using pure ammonia to cycle my tank. Would someone give me some feedback about my Circulation pump purchase?
Thanks

Kenn

What are you asking? like if the corallife is a good circulation pump? or if it is enough for your tank

You have those two HOB filters with this pump. I think eventually you should get another one and put it on the other side. For as big as your tank is, I feel that the one side will be dead if that makes since.

You could go a long time without it. Like when you have more money from a paycheck go for it. If you had corals I would worry of dead spots, but since you have a FOWLER you are good

If you want to know if its a good brand for a pump, then read all the reviews on amazon and other online stores. I like to see everything by stars and read the bad comments first before good comments.

Well, I did as you suggested and most of the reputable sites do not have any reviews for this product as of yet.
