New to the nano cube, so bear with me. I bought mine 2nd hand. It's a DX model. The previous owner modified the pump. I have no idea what it is. But I took it out last night and cleaned it up. I surely helped the water flow. My question is this.

Is a LOT of flow good? Or is there a point at which you could have problems.

It also has some attachment to the outflow that isn't stock. As water pushes thru it, it spins, diverting the flow around the tank.

What is this and where would I buy one?

BTW I had it 3 weeks, and its doing great. I got live rock and 1.5 inch of white sand when I bought it.

Have a cleaning crew, a yellow tail damsel, and a cleaner shrimp for now.

the attachment you are talkingabout is called a hydor flo. it creates a more random flow in the tank more like real waves would. you can get them from drsfostersmith.com.

and amount of flow all depends on the corals you wish to keep. might check out the corals section for specific flow suggestions for different corals.
