Great work Dave!
Thank you. The water flow is 685 GPH. Which isn't super high, but it is over 10x the volume of the tank-55gallons. I did have it higher with more powerheads because my filter was running low. I got a new impeller for my filter and it runs like new so I took out the other powerheads, no need to run them. I believe in higher GPH coming from the filter than actual water movement. High movement from powerheads is not as beneficial or effecient as high water flow from the filter. I have less algae with higher filter flow.The labeling part of the video is so helpful. Thank you for that! I am super newbie, and it can be a struggle just to figure out what plants everyone is discussing.
What is your water flow situation? I feel like that is a major piece of the puzzle in great tanks like this.
