    We were told the two are better for are tank (two smaller units as opposed to one large unit). Is this true?
    Unfortunately our LFS wanted an arm and a leg for them, so we ordered online instead, otherwise they'd be up and running tonight.

    Just wondering about the prefferd location on the powerheads: does anybody have a prefferd location? Did some research and learned that off to the two sides on the back, pointed to the middle on the front. Good, or any suggestions?

    I have two Koralia-3s (850GPH each). They are wonderful. You will love yours. I know I do.

    You just need to experiment a bit...depending on what kind of corals and thier locations...some like alot of flow while others seem to withdraw under heavy current..I have moved mine around a few times and now everyone seems happy...I have the pump flow running from the back to the front slightly angled and up high...and a korilla 1 on each side front top angled down...kind of selfish though, it keeps the fish in the front of the tank frolicking in the current...good visual. :)

    I, also, was lucky enough to get Aptasia with my live rock. I'm a little bothered that the LPS doesn't tell us about these things when we buy them. I did some research and went back to ask them about it. They suggested the peppermint shrimp. I was terrified I would wake up the next day to find a full tank of the stuff. LOL So I bought the shrimp. The really did the trick! Good luck with yours.
