Best tank flow for FOWLR?

Recommended Posts

Hi, I just bought a Jebao SLW 20 sine wavemaker and was wondering what type of flow would best suit a FOWLR tank.

Types of flow include...

1. Laminar/ constant flow

2. Gyre flow

3. Random/ turbulent flow

I was thinking that gyre flow would be useful for picking up detritus off the sand and using a laminar flow at night so that the fish can find dead spots  to rest. Anyone got any opinions?

Fishes in the wild recieve random (and general strong) flow regardless day or night. 

As long as you provide good shelter for your fishes, there is no need to vary day/night flow patterns.
