I have 4 nozzles (jets) which distribute the return flow from the sump into the tank and which are adjustable such that each "can be pointed in different directions".
The return pump produces approximately 10 "tank turnover volumes"/hour and, as such, the flow out of these "jets" is significant.
I spent several months experimenting with the "direction of these jets" to produce current locations in the tank which "made my fishies happy".
My "drop-back position" (in the event that the air curtains along the walls did not produce desirable currents) was to experiment with the nozzle directions again to produce currents in an area of the tank where these loaches "would be happy".
Has anyone "looked at" where I anticipate procuring these loaches?
If so please give me your thoughts (on the loaches as well as the Red Guppies).
I hate to "keep bothering the forum members" with this but this is my first venture outside of what I would term "typical fish (ie. angels, yoyo's, SAE's, tetras, Gold Nuggets, Queens, etc)" and I really do not want to "slobber up" here.
