Flow for a 10G

Recommended Posts

I'm thinking about a mixed reef 10G (no SPS or clam) and wondering what I need for adequate flow. I will most likely be running a HOB refug. Any suggestions?

i run a maxijet900 in my 10g AGA, which is 230gph, and a whisper10 converted to a HOB fuge.

 

planning another 10g (custom) which will only have about ~250gph.

 

many people have much less flow and do fine

I have a 10 gallon reef with only an AquaClear 70 converted to a hang on fuge. It works great! I didn't add any additional powerheads because there is no need. I would reccommend the AQ 70 converted to a DIY refugium.

Would a timer be nessary to get random flow or would a powerhead working in a fixed position be fine? Also, I have seen some of the rotation nozzles that can go on powerheads, do they work?

I have a hydroflow rotation nozzle in my 12g JBJ nanocube. It really keeps the water moving but it falls out sometimes and I have to fix it!! :angry:

To create random flow, intersect the flow of powerheads of if you only have one, create random flow by bouncing it off the glass or rock.
