Water Flow

How much flow should I have in a 210 fowlr? Every number I've seen seems to be a reef tank. Should it be the same?

Hard to say without more info about your Bio load & filtration. Are you running a sump, what size? If you are relying on the live rock in the D.T. to filter the water then a lot of flow may be necessary. If you have a large sump with skimmer then strong water movement wouldn't be as necessary.

I have a 100 gallon sump and about 100-150 lbs of live rock. I'm planning on having a predator tank with an eel, lion, and puffer for sure. I am running a Diablo DCS 300 skimmer. Sorry for not providing this originally. I thought there would be a general answer.

IMO, enough to get everything suspended until they reach the overflows.
