    Hi Guys

    I have 4 Tunze 6205 streams on a controller. What is the best placement and program to run them on?

    My tank is 1.8m X 1m x 0.8m. The reef runs right accross the middle of the tank with most of the SPS on the right hand side. Some LPS and softies.

    Thanks

    Zayd

    run them on interval 1 your bottom channel 1 and 2 i place on min and just above you can tune your percent of power you want and the 1-60 min, on min you should be all good to go

    Thanks and where did you place yours. Mine are 2 on each side pane pointing straight over the reef. One slightly higher than the other.

    i placed mine the same height, but what i did was the front right and back left into 1 side of controller,then left front and right back to 1 side of controller ,so i have front right and back left pointing 1 another and left front and right back pointing 1 another,this should cause i nice movement and prevent dead spots, but i also got at the back drop down to middle of tank the nano 3000lt stream x 4, so 100% no dead spots,if you dont come right call me. i will come set them up for you over the weekend

    Zayd I suggest you follow Imarine's advise he seems to have the correct balance, but the flow can be played with and with a set up like yours, a sequential 2 second interval could also move a lot of water. If you have a 7096 controller you could ramp the pumps to cause a lot of havoc ( download the software upgrade) you can also put your program into storm cycles. The posibilities are endless.
