    I would stay away from damsels fish. They are very aggressive. Try chromis or cardinal fish.

    Deep sand bed and gasses

    The only bacteria that will remove the nitrates is the anerobic bacteria, which only colonizes in the no-o2 or low-o2 areas. So how do you keep the septic tank (deep sand bed) from backing up ...? That's a great question. 1) Sand bed need to be at least 6" deep to promote anerobic bacteria. 2)...

    Yes. This way it acts as a skimmer (i.e. pool skimmer).

    I like the DIY versions the best. image It just uses 3 or 4" PVC pipe with notches. Siliconed to the back of your tank.

    Water movement for reef tank

    A good starting point would be around ten times the volume of your tank (turnover rate). In a saltwater tank you want a natural flow. In nature the water on a reef is random and chaotic. So amount of flow is just the beginning.

    Advice needed first tank

    Your flow is fine for now. Later you will notice dead spots where detritus, or even cyanobacteria builds up. At that point you can adjust your powerheads.

    Keep testing daily for any ammonia or nitrites spikes. Keep us posted. Good luck.

    High Nitrates

    Becareful with that Crushed Coral, a substrate that does nothing but harbor nitrates, decaying food, and waste, either have a big skimmer, turn your substrate regularly or take it out completely, and go with at least a 3mm grade sand.

    How long ago did you setup you tank ?

    Advice needed first tank

    Flow question#1: Will your tank be bare-bottom or have sand ? Question #2: I would also advise against a yellow tail damselfish. They are very aggressive for their size. You could also try to get a captive-Bred ocellaris clownfish.
