  • Turn over.

    Turn is simply g / gph correct?

    So if I have a 12g tank with a 250g pump, thats roughly 20% turn over?

    Greetings All !

    Turnover per Hour = (Gallons per hour Thru the System) / (Total System Volume).

    In your example, Turnover = 250 / 12 = 20.83 = ~21 Times per Hour (~21X).
    (That's approximately 2100% ...)

      Awesome.

      Somehow that doesn't seem right...Why the 21X?

        he's simply rounding up, otherwise it would be 20.83x

          the volume of your tank is being pumped 21 times (X=times)

            OH.

            So that's not enough then, I should shoot for 50-60X right?

              it could be enough. It depends on rock, coral placement, pump placement etc. If the polyps are moving, then you are getting good flow.

                Well, this is a non SPS tank.

                Just rics and some zoas. I'm trying to get a huge growth of rics for my 60g cube so when I set it up I can complete the "carpet"

                      Yeah, I didn't think they needed too much flow.

                      Good

                        FWIW, ever since starting zeo.. i've never had the growth i'm getting now ever before from my rics... i have a green yuma that never split in the 6 months that i've had it, within the first month in a zeo tank it split twice

                        also i don't spot feed any corals, so that wouldn't be part of the equation

                            Awesome.

                            I just need to figure out how I will do ZEO in such a small enviroment.

                            Especially the reactor part.

                              I've noticed just in the last few weeks that my ricordias have gotten HUGE! I'm hoping they'll split soon.
