The plants got burned (all except the rotala that I had in my high light 91L ) from the sun, but they are starting to recover. I needed a larger pump than the ~120 GPH pump that I have in there (I had it kicking up dust in a closet), so I ordered this ginormous dual koralia knockoff made by sunsun haha
3200 GPH should be enough The zebra danios should like it haha. If it's too much, I can always put a brick in front of it to impede the flow some.
Question, though: should I put the pump pointed straight down the middle to make a more mixed flow, or down one side so that the water will circulate in a vortex? Or maybe on the bottom pointed straight up at the surface to make plenty of ripples?

What do you guys think?

Oh, and I should get some pictures up soon.
