Would two Koralia 1's and a Rena XP2 be enough water movement for a softcoral reef tank in a 29 gallon? (I traded my 20L for the 29) The reason I ask is I was planning on going with two Koralia 1's but I accidently bought a 1 and a 2. lol. Thats what I get for not reading the labels! Your help is appreciated.

The 1 and 2 should be adequate enough. Just put the 2 on the opposite side of the 1 and the rena return.

But would it be okay just to have two 1's? I would like to have symmetry.

That's fine too. But get rid of the rena idea.

Well, let me ask you this. What type of filtration media are you planning on using? If it's anything other than live rock and perhaps carbon, you'll be openning up a can of worms.

Well, actually this is very similar to my other two threads. So, if someone wants to merge them thats fine.

But in the other top container I was planning on having the water polishing pad last. Putting some live rock rubble in there sounds like a good idea too.

Well, I'm not a real big fan of canister filters as you can already tell since that's all they do is filter and become clogged and eventually function poorly over time. But at the same time, everything needs maintenance. Large aquariums vs. Nanos? Hmm. There's tons of references one can consult but I learned that experience is a key weapon in this hobby.

I sort of look at canister filters as a obscure form of placebo but that's just me.
