    i have dual RW8 and would like some advice on placement please . Tank is 1,2m with corner overflow in left of picture. I was going to move them from the right side, to equally spaced , 3/4 high on the back panel. I used to have two additional power heads on left but thought it was too much, and was keeping detritus in the tank by blowing it away from the overflow. Any advice ?

    Ideally you want to place them so that you get flow in all areas of the tank, even behind the rockwork at the back. If your pumps are stopping the surface water from going down the overflow then place one pump lower than the other one, and point the higher one slightly upwards to push the water towards the overflow.
