    How much flow should I have for 100g with softies and LPS?I have a 100g tank with a 29g sump/refugium,I'm running a mag9 on a scwd and 3 other small powerheads. I will be adding a closed loop with a another mag9, will that be enough turnover for my tank?

    Should be enough for a softies/LPS tank, I would think.

    That should be enough flow, like he said watch out for the squid mine took off 100+gph from my pump. It says "low back pressure" but I'd hate to see one with "alot" of back pressure. I really dont recommend them just from my own bad experience
