I am having trouble trying to find out how high I should turn on my MP10s and what setting. I have two in a tank that is 30x18x18 42 gallons. I have leathers, gsp, zoas, etc.

Any suggestions?

You have 2 pumps, let's call them A and B

Turn B off

Put A in constant mode

Adjust the speed of A to the maximum level you feel comfortable with -- go for movement but not thrashing.

Note the level you settled at...

Now turn off A and do exactly the same with B

Now you know what your "max" is for each pump, and you can just go and use whatever program you like, using the same "max" for each one that you found. I would recommend trying out Reef Crest, Nutrient Transport Mode and Pulse, but all of the modes are great.

Then enjoy :)

I agree with the above as far as setting max speed.

Personally, I put them pumps on opposite ends, in anti-sync long pulse mode to create alternating gyres.
