Thought some of you might be interested in a look at how flow is provided to a few of the nano displays I take care of. Covered are several different types of flow in nano tanks all the way from a 30 gallon Innovative Marine LPS reef to a high energy 5 gallon reef.

Let me know what you think!

Great video Mike! I have a Fusion 20g with softies and LPS. I have to spare MP10's on each side for flow, but I'm still getting dead spots in places. Can you give me some tips on pump placement or recommendations? 4STm9vkETMmL7tG55%pvyA.jpg

If you haven't tried it yet, try offsetting the pumps from each other so that one is closer to the front of the tank and the other closer to the back. It may be that their flow is colliding and losing some momentum in the middle with them pointed directly at each other.

Always good videos. I see these tanks and question the idea of drilling an RSM I got.
