I keep at least 10x my tank capacity per hour, so 750 gal per hour for you. My tank is 100 gallon , I have 2 hobs = 350 gph a piece, a canister = 350 gph power heads (2) 200 gph so I'm at 1450 gph total

I currently have a 1250gph power head. I noticed it keeps one side of the tank very clean, but all poop and debris stays right under it.
So, I'm adding another head on the opposite side. my tank is 90g.

I have 2 500 gph circ pumps and it keeps sand clean but are a bit too strong for small fishand it does move te sand a little. Doesn't stop it up but moves it. I may go to 2 at 250 each. Tank is 90 gal.

I run either 2 aquaclear 110's or a 110 and a large air-driven sponge filter on my 75/90 gallon cichlid tanks.
