    Lady J,

    It's been a very long time since I have maintained a FW tank.

    I can tell you that when I placed a Koralia Nano in my 12 gallon tank it barely created any flow so I believe in a 30 tank you would be able to position it to avoid even moderate flow.

    Member 2in10 and others are really the go to people on FW tanks, as I have been out of the loop so long.

    Thank you. :) I'll go and try to track them down. This is all so new because as I mentioned earlier, I'm used to a saltwater tank and things are verrry different for a freshwater one. Have a great night and thank you for your help!

    I would not go larger than the Koralia Nano in your tank. Place it on a side wall and point it toward or along the front wall.
