where would you locate 2 MP10Wes units...opposite sides or on the same side and why?

If your going to sync them together I would so opposite sides, and run reef crest mode most of the time, it works for me, and really cuts down on dead spots .. I have a mp40 and mp10 in a 125G tank

On cubes I like the idea of dual wavemaker: IE one for dual returns on back and syncronized w/ dual powerheads on front end of side glass of tank pointing towards each other down and at glass at opposite side. This way when they work in conjunction with the return nozzles they create quite a circular flow leaving no dead spots. Especially if there is space between the rock work and the back glass. Which is my personal preference on a cube.

Or you can easily create turbulent water with return nozzles working against powerheads. Makes so many options w/ this set up cause you basically have all four conors covered.

Happy Reefing
