HI guys just a quick question. My tanks 29gallons and it's dimensions are 80cm x 48cm x 50cm. What size power head would you recommend for it on a simple FOWLR setup. I've looked at a hydro koralila nano 900LPH but not sure if that's too small?

A Jecod RW 4 would be ideal you can also have different modes and dial the power up and down to suit from 500LPH to 4000LPH and are reasonably priced also have a single push button for feed.

I run 2 x RW15's in my 6ft tank and can only run them at half the power or water tried to leave the tank haha

I just had a look at it and it looks brilliant! May have to order one and then see how one goes. Would you say I should one pointing at the live rock and one towards the surface ?

As they use Bluetooth they communicate with each other

That's one awesome tank! Wish I could have a yellow tang they're awesome fish but my tank is only 29 gallon far too small do you recommend any type of starfish for a beginner? I've heard they can die easy and pollute your tank.

Thanks

I've had my sand sifter about a year and a half but sand sifter needs a big mature sandbed to live properly and all others also need a large established tank or they won't live long.

Fair enough, il leave a starfish then Plus I would really love a mandarin goby but I've heard they are very hard to feed but apparently there main diet are Copepods, couldn't I dose them weekly for the mandarin goby ?

They are again hard to keep I lost mine and I was putting 20x bags of pods in a week and have a refugium where pods thrive and I could not keep one for more then 8 months they literally eat 100's of pods a day.
