80G flow rate

Any ideas what the recommended flow rate for 80G/400litres? I have seen different theories of either 10x the capacity or 20x?

For a fish ony tank you go with 10x your DT volume
For a Reef tank, it starts at 20x your DT volume and goes up, depending on the types of corals your keeping.

I have a reef tank and a 3300, 3000 and use the 3000 return pump for flow too. Wasn't sure if I needed more
