    Hey Guys
    So I just installed two Seio Prop 1000 pumps in me display tank. The question are:
    1. Is this enough flow in my tank.

    2. As youread below, should I add the Seio 530 rated 2000l/ph and

    3. Have I placed them in the right place? One is in the front right hand side slightly facing upwards to get the surface moving a little for the HOB to do surface skimming. The other is on the back left side glass facing downwards to get flow at the bottom of the tank. Both these pumps are rated 3800l/ph. Is this enough flow for my tank which is a 165Lt. It is 900l x 500h x 450d. I also have Seio 530 which is rated 2000l/ph. I am thinking of putting it on the back glass towards the far right of the tank facing diagonally to the left blowing across the middle of the tank facing upward to get some flow on top.
    Anybody want to add suggestions on a better option. Whether I should or should not use the 530 and advise a more strategic placing of these pumps.
    See attached photo to get an idea.
    BTW I have some Softies, SPS and LPS. You can see from the picture.
    Many Thanks

    What's your total flow in the tank now? Just the two 1000s?

    Hey B. Thanks again for the pumps. Much appreaciated. Yes they are the only two pumps I have in the tank besides the HOB and my external filter cannister returning water into the tank which is not a strong flow at alllllll.
