    Hi Guys,
    Another noob question...
    I have 2 1000 lph Seio pumps in my 300l display tank ... is that too much flow? I intend to keep a couple of hardy fish (Clowns) and some Mushrooms.
    Regards
    Fanie

    i would go on the above too. 1000ltr in a 300ltr display may not be enough:)

    You could try adding a few more pumps.
    What substrate do you have? also you will need to check for dead spots in your tank (basically anyplace that the detritus settles) as this will cause algea.

    Try the sunsun 3000l/h or the seio 2500l/h with magnet mounts. good value for money and they can fit anywhere. Add one at a time and see if your happy with the results.
