Thank you for help! That's a great place for us to start with their placement and we can fiddle with it from there to avoid a sandstorm effect. We currently don't have any corals in this aquarium yet, but want to keep our options as open as possible.
I'm not sure if this counts towards the reccommended 30-5
for flow, but we do have 2 HOB
fliters on this aquarium that agitate the surface quite well. The filters are an Emperor 400 and an Emperor 280.
If this ends up being too much flow for this aquarium, we could probably switch out one of the Hydor Koralia 750's with with one of the 170 gph
Aquatech from our 38 gallon. That aquarium could probably use more flow than what it currently has anyway.
What would your suggestions be for flow and placement in our 38 gallon? Currently we have (2) Aquatech 170 gph
and 1 of the smaller Petco brand powerheads, I'm not even sure what the gph
is on that one. Corals in this aquarium are all softies right now: Florida ricordea, mushrooms, dragon eye zoas, and pom pom xenias. Current placement is: Petco one on the left corner of the back wall, angled slightly upwards towards surface and towards center of the tank and 1 of the Aquatech 170's is on the right corner of the back wall pointing slightly upwards towards the surface and towards the center of the tank, and the 3rd one is placed on the left side wall pointing toward the front glass and angled slightly downwards.
