    Dana takes a detailed look at Tunze Turbelle Stream pumps from a more useful velocity metric instead of the ubiquitous gallons-per-hour metric our hobby has become accustomed to. Water velocity may be the key to certain corals' success.

    Have you ever wondered why you're unsuccessful in the husbandry of certain corals? Perhaps you've emulated the aquarium of a friend or one you've seen in a shop. Every detail has been copied. Why does the success others have seem to elude you with certain corals? As with many endeavors, the devil is in the details. While some might contribute lack of success to lighting or water chemistry issues, it is certain that many failures can be attributed to water motion. Estimating water velocity visually is difficult - the clear waters of reef aquaria don't allow easy visualizations. This article will offer insights of some of the popular water pumps available to hobbyists and can aid them in selection of the proper pump for your aquarium as well as estimating proper placement for a few coral species.
