Right now I'm at 10.4x turnover. If I add another XP3, i'll be at 13.2. If I add the 950 gph pump/Oceanclear, I'll be at 18x turnover.

As far as feeding, I use NLS, and O.S.I. cichlid flakes. Twice a day, about what they can eat in 30-60 seconds. Any other recommendations? And to get a picture of the mature tank, I'll have to wait until the tank, er, 'matures'.

well, they are getting the best...as to feeding and filtration. with NLS, they should grow up quite fast and i won't have to wait long to see the mature tank .
regarding filtration, if the oceanclear system doesn't create too much of a current i.e. if they don't have any problems swimming, definitely go ahead and add it.
