Hey there fellow reefers, I was wondering how you guys position your powerheads. Current setup is a Biocube 14 with a Koralia 425 in the middle of the first chamber and a hydor flo on the output which is in the third chamber. I have a second powerhead(koralia 245) which ive been using for over 9 years but i was noticing a ton of algae blooms and a slight nitrate spike so i upgraded the flow. So my question is how do you guys position your flow to maximize benefits. I still have the original output pump that came with the tank... thoughts on upgrading or dont fix what aint broke? I put a diagram of the tank from above. Blue is the possible powerhead position. (thinking of putting both powerheads in there) Red is the Hydor Flo.
I was going to forego putting a heater in my Biocube 14 since I live on the gulf coast (its warm down here) but have decided to be better safe than sorry. That said, any recommendations for a heater that can be placed in one of the chambers (I assume the first chamber) in a biocube 14?
