Multiple Vortechs

I currently run one Vortech on my 225 gallon tank and will be adding a second one. For those that run multiple vortechs are you running them in the same direction in sync or opposite directions anti-synch? Just curious as to the results you are having.

Thanks.

I helped set up the display at our local FS. Put them on random reefcrest anti sync. I have to believe, looking at the water's surface that the random flow is more beneficial. It's also more aesthetically pleasing with the softies IMO.

Unless you want to set up a gyre?? Which many reefers swear by.

Ive got 4 in my 220..I've tried all different combinations,the one im most happy with is lagoon mode and keeping them sycned..at first it pushed to much sand around even with the larger grade sands,so I bought some more rock and put them in different place thruout the sand and it seem to do the trick.

Thanks for the responses. Has anyone tried them on the same side in a 6 foot tank? Thanks for the photo.

You could get a ticket!!
There was a link to a HUGE tank that had like 10 vortechs all on one end. I'm not sure where it is, but it's possible to do :)

I saw that tank. It was like 2200 gallons and must have had 10 of them one end. It may have been 12. I was just curious as to how two have performed in a 6 foot tank on the same side. I can always move them but I was just curious.
