i have what i believe to be a 46gal bowfront.
i purchased 2 powerheads (koralia 600gph)
they should be arriving any day now :roll:
anyways my question is - WHERES THE BEST PLACE TO PUT THEM?
2 at the top on the side?
1 at top 1 at bottom on the side?
2 at top on either sides?
1 at top on one side, 1 at bottom on other side?
2 at top on back wall?
2 at bottom on back wall?
1 at top, 1 at bottom on back wall?
1 at top back wall one at top side wall?
1 at top back wall one at bottom side wall?
THERES A MILLION POSSIBILITIES!!! :(
and should they be directly aim on my rocks or the water circulation in the tank will be enough?
thank you to everyone involved. :D
Ultimately, you will want to have the powerheads placed, and directed in a manner that will produce the desired flow throughout the tank.
hey thanks steve, hopefully they'll be here in the mail friday :D
Glad to help. Let us know how you make out. And let me know how you like those Koralia 2's. I was looking at the same things (2's or possibly 3's) to replace the AquaClear 50's I currently have.
ok im pissed i didnt spend the extra $5 each on the koralia's to get pump #3s. this would have given me 250 more gallons per hour each. i have a 46gallon bow front and i guess the #2s are sufficient( the waters moving, just not very fast ), just wish i bought the next pump size up.
I have a 46 gallon bow and I bought the Koralia 3. I used just one in my tank, and along with the filter output I get great movement. I haved it placed about 3/4 of the way to the left, and about 2/3 of the way up the tank. I have it pointed at the opposite corner, and there isn't a dead spot in the tank! I love this powerhead.
I included a pic.
your tanks looking good! how do you like mine?? :lol:
Looking good! What are you planning on using for substrate? I use live sand and had to be careful not to point the powerhead at it, because I kept getting a bald spot in the sand...
i have 2 bags of live sand, 1x 40lb bag and 1x 20lb bag of ocean direct caribean live sand = total of 60lbs live sand
it came in the mail yesterday and im probally going to get it into the tank today, i just want to go to home depot and get a piece of eggcrate tile to put down first ( lowes didnt have any ) and maybe a few pounds of live rock today to..
I think you will notice more movement once you get some inhabinants in there. What are you planning on? FOWLR or Reef?
