It is on the sand bed in the open. Might not get a lot of flow where it is. I might try adjusting the lock line return on the left.

Try it out to see if there is a difference. 😊

Sooooooooo this is kind of embarrassing. When I moved from the red sea e260 to my 120.....I kept the return pump from the red sea. I followed your advice and moved the lock line return on the left side more forward and down. Six inches from the spout and I can't feel any flow. I know it may cross the vortech mp40, but with the reef setting I should be able to feel something between pulses. 2 return lines are going to take up head pressure but I've got the return cranked all the way up....... did I mention this might be embarrassing?  I'm thinking I need a bigger return. Going to look in garage door the box to confirm what flow is because it's going to be easier than breaking into the plumbing in my state. Last I knew I had hoarded left over reef parts in it.

Couldn't find the box. Most have been consolidated during our move. However, I did find the jebao5000L DCS that I started on the red sea e260. Good is where a journal would really be handy, crazy I know. For the life of me I don't remember why I swapped it out on the red sea other than Google says the 5000L is 1325gph, so maybe it had too much flow. On the 120g dialed back this might be perfect. Going to have my son help with a water change,  so I'll trade them out and see what happens.
