Hi guys I know the min turn should be ten times a hour. Which I get with my TT ex600. I've looked at the Hydor Koralia nano pump. But this turns my tank over 25x a hour is this two much? Or is there another power head that get me say 16 times anhour

With the koralias and other streamflow type pumps you can go way above the 10x rule as the flow is much more diffuse and you get lots of volume but with much lower velocities so the fish don't get blasted around. I'd say you could add one to almost any tank of 2ft or less and it would be fine. I used to run a Koralia 1 one a 1m, 180l tank and it was a little undergunned IMO.
