    Hello and Welcome Paul

    Crushed corals are not so much in use anymore, due to it trapping detritus.

    power heads 600l/per hour, on a 2m tank, it is way too small. That in itself will lead to detritus buildup.

    Anyway, welcome to MASA.
    Read up and see what other are doing. There are loads of information available.
