is my powerhead too much?

I followed some advice and got a powerhead to my 60gal sw tank. My corals seem to like it and even look like they have grown (maybe just my imagination), but i have a true perc. pair and they seem very skiddish and seem to get blown around. i got JBJ 1800 powerhead. is this to much for my tank or do the fish just need to adapt to this new item to their home? TIA

You would be better off with 2 of them. 10x per hour or more circulation is ideal. Your fish should get used to it quickly, point the PH's toward eachother angled slightly upwards.

well it has two valves that the water comes out of from the one head and they shoot the water out in opposite directions. do you think that is okay?

Sounds cool, I have never seen one that does that. You should still add more flow if you have under 10x. Most Corals need a strong flow to help expel waste.
