Default MJ1200s in a 10 gal...

What do you guys think of two MJ1200s providing flow in my 10 gallon?

Oh right. SPSs and a single photosynthetic gorgonian. If I do use two, they will each be in corners, essentially both blowing towards the front of the tank. One will probably have a diffuser on it.

I think it's ridiculous.

I have maxijet 1200's cause problems at the end of a six foot tank.

I think it would be fine. I've run 1 in a 5g, no trouble. It might move some sand around at first, but that will settle down.

maybe if you plumbed each into a loop of small-diameter PVC that ringed the whole tank, drilled full of holes... but even then... does quantity equal quality here?

quite a challenge for the young student.

Ooo I like that idea Alan. I'll give it a shot in the next few weeks.

Probably best with a bare bottom tank.
