Powerhead size


Premium Member
Hi everyone. I am getting back into the reef hobby after about a years. I purchased a 150 gallon six foot tank.

Does anyone have a recommendation on size and brand of power heads. It will be mixed reef. Curently looking at a mp40 or a tunze.

Any ideas?

Hi Matt,
You don't describe your rock aquascape or flow goals. SICCE just did a nice presentation on flow at recent club monthly meeting (recording archived here):

I've a 180g with 2 MP40s and 2 4k IceCap gyres which generate low and medium flows within my tank.

Welcome back to hobby!

Warmly, Lisa
