  3. Scott Phillips says

    I keep my temperature at 78 degrees.
    I have two Marineland 350 powerheads, one on each side that keep the water rotating around the tank.

  4. I keep my 3 reef tanks at 78 degrees and use wavemakers for flow on each end of the tank along with a small koralia behind the rockwork to prevent dead spots. In my 12 gal edge tank the temp is 73 to accomodate my 3 year old Catalina goby. Flow is maintained with the integrated HOB filter return.

    78 degrees, Jebao wave makers.

  9. I have an 800 lit. Reef tank. My tank is located in my room where in winters is warmed by our central heating system and in summers is cooled by our central cooler. And I do not use aquarium heater. So my tank water temperature is usually between 25 to 27 celecius degrees.
    I used to make flow in my tank by means of 6 wave makers. But thanks to the sophisticated technology of M/S Echotech Marine , I have substituted them by 3 Vorthech prubler pumps. And I am satisfied now.
