just because the hookah is smaller doesnt mean it will require less heat and vice versa.
the problem is your Mya Ceramic bowl. They are very thin and heat up very quickly. When you see videos of ppl using 3-4 coals, its because they are most likely using a tangiers or egyptian bowl which can tolerate alot of heat (for a while). Ive come to the conclusion that the mya bowls are pretty much useless
