current in a tank

Postby KoenEeckhoudt » Sat Jul 12, 2008 4:57 am

Here's the deal :)

In the new troph tank, I just installed a new pump in the bio filter... The tank itself is 90G, the pump is now giving an output of +/- 600 Gph... This enters the tank in 1 tube... It's like a whrilpool... At first sight, my trophs seem to like it.
Has this got any disadvantages? Do they really like it, or are they just confused now? :)

The current is really high right now.

Can this have negative impact? (it's possible to turn the current down somewhat on the pump itself)

I know of no negative impact (I like you think they enjoy it) except they like an area of low current when breeding.

If you want less water movement in the tank I would not turn the outflow down I would just point it in a direction that dose not cause so much swirling in the tank.
