Jebao WP-40 for a 210

The 210 is a around the corner and I want to make sure that I have enough flow for it. I have 2 Jebao WP-40's for the DT and an Eheim 1262 (chosen for quietness in the living room) for the return.

The tank is 72x24x28 with 350 lb. of live rock and will be a mixed reef with a fairly heavy fish load. Thoughts?

Thanks,
Mike

Two Jebao 40s should be fine. You may decide to also put a 25 along the back wall, but then maybe not. I'm using two Vortech 40's in my 265, with a Jebao 25 along the back, and flow is more than enough.

Thanks ca1ore... I do have a couple koralia pumps that I was thinking about using for that purpose (I should have put that in the post).

BTW, you've chimed in on quite a few of my threads and have helped answer several of my questions. Sharing your opinions and experiences has been greatly appreciated.

Mike

giving it a bump to see if there are any other thoughts or suggestions.

What are you planning on having in the tank? I agree with the 2 wp40s and an extra wp25 to target any low flow area you might have.

I have the same tank and the same 3 pumps and love my setup. In fact I have the two WP40'S dialed down viay Reef Angel because it's too much flow for my oolite sand.

For me, the mixed reef will have some softies, a bit more LPS and SPS. The fish load will be heavy with the bulk made up of some Tangs and a harem of Anthias that will, hopefully, appreciate the flow.

Thank you David and good point about the oolite because I will have the same, or similarly sized, substrate in my DT as well.

I have two of them in my 190 and I have some great flow. Maybe when everything grows in a a couple of years I might have to add a small one where it might have lower flow.

You definitely will not need more than two WP40'S then lol

i ran 2 in a 4x4 x3 tank for 7 months and then added 2 more, have them running different modes on the reef angel, seems to really get the gunk from collecting on the bottom much better now and skimmer is working better. 2 is probably enough for your tank, but 2 more allows for more directed flow , probably depends more on how your rock work is laid out. they are pretty amazing little pumps.
