    quick question.....

    I have a 26 gallons saltwater tank with 12 gallons sump filtration system. I have a mixture of soft and hard coral in my display tank..

    For those who have the same corals. do you guys leave your circulating pump (not the return pump from the sump) on all the time or do you guys turn it off at night...

    what do you guys recommend?.

    thanks guys john

    In my 120, I have a K2,K4 and an mp40. The K2 is turned off all the time as it's a backup. The K4 is turned all the time and mp40 is turned half on during the night. (it has a contoller)

    In my 125, 3xK2 and one K3 are turned on 24 hrs.

    I would just leave them on :)
