Very good explanation. Part one through five of that piece is excellent reading.
Help me out with your idea of "some sort of switching mechanism that causes flow to go from one pattern to another". At the moment I use two two Tunze 6060's on the opposite ends of a 125. I have them set up in such a way that I have a gyre type current that goes in one direction only. The only thing I could think of for now is to run only one at a time on timers and have it switch directions but then I will be effectively cutting my gph in half. Or I could add two more but that just is not feasible right now. In about a year I will be switching to an 8x2x2 with a closed loop. What would be a good solution for the same basic problem?
