    Hi Guys,

    I'm starting a 50 lt (Boyu TL 450) nano tank setup.

    It is busy with the cycling process.

    The spray bar in the tank have create a current in the tank.

    Would it be better if a add a very small power head or wave maker?

    If yes - which flow per hour?

    I'm going to put in the tank like leather, pincushion,zoas, mushrooms and frog spawn corals when tank is done with the cycling. Want to get the flow correct.

    thats should be fine for those corals, you can also add the small seio prop 320 for flow, i have 2 of them in the TL-550
