    I am always fussing with dead spots. Are you happy with the current in your aquarium?

    On paper it looks like a lot but in the tank I think there could be more but I don't want to blast things. Every one is happy and I have new polyps on my SPS's so they must like it. I will have to vote yes....thanks Tangster!

    I say no. All I have on my 180 are the 2 returns and 4 mj1200's. I want to put in 2 Tunze 6100's but i'm not happy with the $700 price tag. I do not have dead sports yet the current is not enough to even make anything sway like it used to in the 75gal.

    I have a Maxi jet 1200 and SEIO 620. My maxijet right now seems like it gives off more power than my SEIO which I don't think it should. It felt like it was much stronger before, so I need to check it out and see if it is working properly. If it worked properly I would have plenty of flow.

    I need another 400watt halide pendant so the right side of my tank is bare at the prewent time...til overtime kicks in at work!
    I have recently begun to switch my attention from stonies to zoos and Palythoa polyps!!! Once they start to grow and spread...it will be a nice splash of color for my tank, especially with the variety of colors associated with my polyps.
    Fire and Ice, pink panzer, red people eaters and orange bam-bams are some of the recently added zoos to my reef!

    Not here. I have 3 maxi jet 1200's to flow a 5 foot tank!! I have a nice "jet" right at the pump, but then it fades really fast. But no worries, two high flow maxi mods are in the mail...

    When i planned my tank, that was one of my first consideration, because lets face it, its the ball game; for algae, sps growth, dead spots, deposit of sediments , so yes i made that my priority 1. I made my own rockwork for that purpouse 3 1/2 inch off the floor to let the waterflow go underneath the rock , the return is hooked to the structure and i got 2 MP 40 Vortech Powerhead for my 65 g .Take a look;
