Pumps

I have a tunze 6055 on my 110. It seems to have plenty of flow do what would be the benignity of having one on opposite side. Tank is 4 by 3 and 28 inches wide. It is set on pulse 30-100%.

Do you have any pumps on the other side? I would just add one koralia over there just to break up the flow a bit more but I hear great stuff about the tunze so maybe the pulse mode can handle the whole thing.

If thats all the flow you have then i would definitely get more. I have more flow than that in my 29g for reference. I think you will want at least one more.

+1 if this is a reef you'll want around 40x tank volume for gph. Your tank would need anywhere from 3500-5000 gph depending on scaping and corals. Fowlr and I would shoot for 20-30x tank volume.
