    Question Powerhead Advice plz..

    Right now in my 20 gal i have 2 AC 201.. 126 GPH.. at each corner... i see all my nice Red Slimy algae swaying back and forth.. : .. But my question is, Would it be better to get 1 maxi-jet 1200(295GPH) for the center or get 2 JBJ-1800 dual (290GPH) for each corner a place 1 powerhead 201 in center blowing forward?

    the more the better... but make sure you dont blast your corals directly.. specially the soft ones.. they get pissed easily.

    moving.. so temporarily out of SW :b8:
    planning next tank, possibly 60x30x20 on 2x plasma.

    Two MaxiJet 900, one at each top back corner, converging diagonally to the opposite front bottom corner, would produce nice turbulent flow. The MJ1200's are overkill because it would blow everything around.
    If the authors of "Finding Nemo" knew anything about Clownfishes, Marlin would turn into a female and Nemo would become her new husband.
