You should be able to put it back in the tank, but maybe try to keep the powerheads off till it finds a spot. You can guide it toward a rock with a large plastic spoon or other utensil and hold it...

Peter, in my case I had my carbon in a filter sock and had it tied on the end of the drain. Rookie mistake on my part; I just should have placed the sock in the sump away from the strong flow. I know...

OK, let's say I buy one coral grown under 20000K lighting, and another grown under 6500K lighting. I put them in my tank with a 10000K bulb. Would I be able to easily tell one from another?

I've got a Mag 9.5 for a return on mine, and I run it with a SCWD. I don't think a Mag 7 will give you enough "oomph". I'm not familiar with the Quiet One pumps, sorry!

My camera hates actinics too, and it's such a shame because there's a lot of stuff in the tank that looks really neat.
