How much to run Wavemaker?
I added a SunSun 500gph wavemaker to my 55g tank. I have a SunSun 302b which has good filtration but not much flow.
Its mounted on the front left side (in middle) and angled slightly towards the front glass. It creates water movement in the whole tank. Plants in front sway right, plants in back row sway left, like there is a big circle of current.
Fish are OK with it, have been swimming in it, but I dont want to keep it on all the time because I know it will eventually move the substrate.
Currently I have it set for 1.5hr in morn to circulate CO2 b4 lights come on. Then two other times in day 4.5 hours total.
Is this enough or should it be on for (say) twelve hours?
