Yea but its all spread out . That is what you want you dont want just one stream. I have a barrel affect that is in the middle interupted by the maxi jet which is on a wavemaker. This creates a reef like motion to the water. I still am trying to perfect it but that is the beauty of it with multiple PHs. You can aim them any which way you want. Plus you want as much flow going through your live rock as you can get this way there wont be any dead spots and this is also your means of biological filtration. I dont use a filter only a skimmer in my sump.

Just dont point PHs directly at any corals and pointing them at the sand will move your sand around so you need to find the right balance. Also some surface agitation is a good thing as well. This will provide oxygen to the habitants. You could do two K2s in each corner one facing down more than the other and the other being pointed towards the surface more. This would give you surface agitation and the barrel effect in the middle.
