I have a top SUMP and 3 bubblers in my 50g. Is this enough for mbunas? There is no current at all. The only surface agitation is from the water dropping from the top sump and the bubblers. I had the current ON before and it seemed like it kept the fish on the move 24x7. Now they seem happier and do sleep on the decor at night.

What is the GPH? Shoot for 8X to 10X for mbuna.
Pumps rated 580 G per hour but we know in reality its mostly half so 290G for 50 g tank : Approx 6 times max but I have 4" thick substrate with a plenum and 2 BCBS in my top SUMP.
