    Hi all yet again.

    Have a question here and want to see what are your guys feel on this.

    With regards to the sump, I have a flow rate of around 2000lph going into and out of my 2 connected sumps (one feeds the next with 50mm pvc piping) ((I think this os ok))
    The water level in the second sump is smooth - should I put a small powerhead in it to stir the water around a bit more? I mean the water flows good through it but the surface water is flat and smooth - does not "churn" the top of the water?!

    Is this ok?:whistling:
