    Nice tank. I am a bit worried about the vortechs that they may be too powerful. The corals near them are going to get hammered unless they have figured out how to broaden the flow. I would personally go for 4 X MP40's so there is flow at the rear and front of the tank and not just the middle

    They will be going on the sides of the tank so there will be flow everywhere in the tank
