My new wavemaker and wavemaker General Q's

Just got the Jebao RW-15 on my 75g and it's great. I have it on the lowest speed 1/8 on pulsating mode. It has a night mode - trying to figure out how that works and a feeding mode which is great. I can run it up as high as a 4/8 but it scares the hell out of my fish - they are still getting used to it. Will bump it up to 2 tomorrow maybe. 10% power is 400 gal/hour, or as high as 100% power is 4,000 gal/hour. I recommend to people to get a higher power and running it on low speed bc its silent on low speed. You can hear a slight buzz on high and probably would last longer keeping it on low.

A few questions I'd like to put out there. I have pics and maybe you guys can see a couple dead spots on the corner. Any way to get rid of that dead spot? Is my positioning ok??

My sand used to be covered in what I think are diatoms and other suspect Cyano but I disagree. Anyways I haven't cleared it out and think those spots may stay clear now that flow is MUCH better.

Question 2: should I get a second? I currently have a Rio 1700 on the upper right side. Doesn't do much but counter the flow of my return pump -both weak. I could toss it and get another RW-15 link the two and get some really good flow. Also so my fish won't just hang out on the right half of my tank.
