Help on Placing MP40wes

I bought 4 MP40wes for my tank. I would like to place it in the back so I don't have to see it. The question is, what is the optimal placement for the mp40wes if my tank dimension is 78" long x 30W x 24" height. It is a bare bottom tank which will be growing SPS.


Another question is, would 2 mp60wes do a better job?

Although you mentioned placing all four MP40wES pumps on the rear panel, I might suggest running (2) pumps on each end of the aquarium and (2) pumps on the rear panel. The reason for doing so is because by having a few pumps on the sides, you'll really be able to penetrate the full 72'' length of the aquarium. The other two pumps placed on the rear panel can suppliment that flow and help to create randomness. To answer your second question; two MP60's would certainly be a great option as well.

There isn't necessarily an "optimum" height, it really depends on your individual application. Do you have a picture of your aquarium layout? I would recommend running them between 6-12'' below the water level and adjusting as desired.
