Still setting up my 28G Nanocube, any suggestions for placement of Hydra Kalalia 1 powerheads? SHould they be low about 5" from the bottom? Not sure where they would be most effective.

you'll have to experiment as all setups differ due to rock placement, etc. 5" off the bottom might set up a sandstorm. the key is to make sure that all areas of the substrate and as much of the rock structure as possible are swept with some current. I have 2 #2s in my 29 placed a couple inches below the surface on either side. the one on the right is towards the back and pointed straight across and level. the one on the left is pointed slightly down and forward. I notice current over all the bottom and through the open rock structure.
