    i just added a hydor 320 pump and a hydror koralia 1050
    so 55x flow in a 29g biocube is ok?
    320gph in main pump and 1050 in DT?
    altogether im running 1370gph in my 29g.

    my current livestock consists of
    1 ocy clown
    devils hand
    trmpet
    mushroom
    gsp
    hammer coral
    eagle eyes
    yellow zoa polyps
    cleaner shrimp

    i have PH pointed at rock to break so stir up things a bit. sandbed finally stopped going crazy too.

    just want to make sure im not going to hurt or mess anything up

    As long as your sand bed is staying put, then it's not too much flow. Watch your euphyllia for signs of stress though as it may be affected.

    As long the sand, rocks or your corals stays in place it would be fine. nothing to worry about.
