what power head i need


Recommended Posts

Think about total flow (from a power filter, powerhead, return pump...). For a typical reef, about 25 times turnover is decent. So, 13 x 25 = 325gph of total flow is about right.

It really depends on what you are stocking. If it is just mushrooms then very little is need. If it's full of SPS then you need lots of flow. The main thing is to try to keep it random and not laminar.

^ +1.

You need to adjust it to what suites your tank. My 10 gallon right now has around 60-65 turn over. and wouldn't mind having more. Have to hit those dead spots and try to randomize the flow.
