water movement

hi all,
due to some advice of lance about beating cyano, he said i need more water movement, so i went out and got myself 2 more koralias. one more number 3 and a number 2. positions them as follows, number3 top right back of tank pointing down on the lr, number 3 top middle back of tank pointing down on to the front glass and lr, and number 2 top left side of tank pointing down on to sand. fish love the differant currents and the cyano is no way need as bad. but i am not sure if i went over the top in a 48" tank. because i cant find a spot when i can put my mushroon when it wiil be happy. ever since i added the phs, the polps have not been fully out like they was. have i added to much or will they get use to the extra movement. thanks.

Hmm, I never had much luck with more movement and cyano (especially once it has set in). Added flow does seem to keep it from setting in. I would look at removing the problem, like less feeding, less lighting and checking your nitrAtes and phosphates.
On the phs, try the two pointing down, like you have now and the middle straight and put your mushrooms in the middle and see if that helps....

How old are your lights and hoe long do you run them?
