powerheads for a 30 gal sw
I've read most of the threads but everyone seems to have a bigger tank than me.
So I was wondering if a nano koralia and a mj 900 plus a skimmer (sea clone) and a AC 300 be enough current in my tank. I don't have my AC300 running all the time. I don't see any dead spots. But I do see a fine film on the top of the water in one corner by the nano koralia.:roll:

You should always have at bare minimum flow 10 times your tank size(in gallons) so you need at least 300gph, better would be 600gph. so if your #'s from the pumps you have add to in between these #'s it'll be fine, which it sounds like it is. i have a MJ600 MJ400 and Skimmer pushing my 25g and my corals are doing well as well as my fish.

I would suggest running your AC300 full time, even if you run it empty. The "top down" water current created by a hang on unit is beneficial and difficult to achieve with only power heads.

agreed and it adds to the randomness of the flow.

its a done deal. I will leave on my AC on all the time.
Thanks for the help.
