    I want to put 2 of these Sun Sun Vibration pumps in my tank. ( 1200x450x450)

    Would it be better to put a Dual in (where you can adjust the 2 heads separately) on the opposite side of my return, or should I opt for 2 separate ones? One on each side?

    2 in my opinion, you can have them cross each other giving you rather randomn flow:peroni:

    I know - but I will use just over half of what I bought, and 2 Oceans is i bit of a drive from Brackenfell.

    I will decide what to do after this salt is finished. The advantage at this stage is that I don't have to buy all the elements and trace that might be missing in the free water.

    My wife works in Langebaan every Thurs and Friday, so I might have a friend who stays there get me some nice clean water outside the bay.... - weekly...

    @Meneer . Lol.... Elements are avail in even more quantity in 2 oceans water.... The salt is designed to replicate NSW(natural sea/saltwater) which is the FREE water from 2 oceans
