Should I add a K1?

12g jbj nano. Maxi jet 900 return pump with nothing in the rear chambers so it's basically a closed loop with a 900 pump.

Should I add a K1 for more flow or will it be overkill.

I have a MJ900 in my NC12 and seems like considerable amount of flow on its own, like SPS tank flow. I would've opted for a MJ600 if the LFS had one, but settled for the 900. Really pushes my clownfish around when they get into the current.

Yeah, the 900 is great, I have dead spots along the rear. Wonder if I should just add some line loks and some pointers.

Get the K1, IMO/IME, you are going to want much more flow than what you have. But then again, I have 2 K1s and my return from the sump in my 10 gallon.

Well, I got the K1 and all I can say is WOW. It's like a hurricane in my tank. I have it mounted on the back wall facing the top left of the tank. I turned the return pump outlet to face the top right.

I have lots of flow now.

Thanks for the help.

I was watching TUF today too (the TV on the background).

The tank looks great, now all yous gotsta do is resist your son's insistence on any more fish. :D

Did you watch the finale? I thought for sure Houston Alexander was going to beat Kimbo down but it was actually a damn good fight.

I won't be adding anymore fish. Next thing I add will be a skimmer.

I did! I was surprised how passive Alexander was. Disappointed in the lack of action, but they had explosive bouts here and there. Kimbo supplexed him!

But yeah, I met a bunch of fighters at UFC 92 last December. My dad scored back stage passes and front row seats through a sweepstakes our internet ISP was running (Charter Communications). Met Randy Couture, Kenny Florian, Stephan Bonner, Wanderlei Silva, Cheick Kongo, Hermes Franca.. and Bruce Buffer...
