Thanks Tom. Unfortunately, this round was short lived. Found the female and a smaller male a little beat up this morning and they are now in the hospital. I think the time has come to increase the flow I the tank. Already have four Aqueon 2400 pumps, gonna add a Koralia 8. Moving all the Aqueon pumps to the left side and the K8 to the right side. Also gonna run the return pump wide open as well.

That blows. I also have 4 aqueon 2400 pumps on my 360 gallon but my petros are not as big as yours.

Hi Pheth. The two fish are healing up nicely! The big female is actually almost back to normal and the male has made a quick turn for the better. I'm gonna keep them in the hospital for another week and then plan on getting them in tank again after removing rocks. I changed up the powerhead arrangement again. 2x 2400 gph on the left, 2x 2400 gph + 1x 3200 gph on the right. Return pump out of the wet dry is pushing about 3000 gph wide open. Probably gonna add another K8 on the left side soon.

That is serious water movement. How are you able to keep the sand to remain on the bottom? my sand flys everywhere

This is just after a WC where I pushed the sand back to cover the whole bottom. Even then, you can see sand moving away from around the overflow
