Well My tank is in good shape I just ordered a Tunze Stream Pump the 6060 model....my tank will be a reef tank and I was wondering how good tunze pumps are for it, also I am only doing LPS, Mushrooms, some soft and a few Polyps. I have 384 watts of lighting....will this be sufficient?

First of all what size tank are we talking about? Besides the new Tunze what other forms of circulation do you have? Also you didn't mention of type of lighting you are using?

With these questions answered it will be much easier for us to help you. Smile

In my opinion you should be fine with adding the Tunze. Just make sure the corals that appreciate lower amounts of flow don't get placed in high flow areas. Depending on the height of the tank you should be able to keep most Softies and LPS with that amount of lighting.
