I don't have those power heads but I don't see why you couldn't use them. I have two 750gph hydor koralias in mine as well as two 250 aqueons. I have a 55 as well. Great flow with the skimmer as well as the overflow and return. I have a little bit of a hard time finding spots to put corals that need lower flow like mushrooms or my bubble coral.

Thanks Tom! I think i'm going to just get the 800 gph wavemaker for now and move the one put of my nano for a little while. I'm having to buy things kind of slowly because of my budget and the stupid speeding ticket I have to pay. Lol. Do you think a 20 gallon tall could work as a sump? I don't think my stand will allow a 20 gallon long

Unless someone can help me figure out how to make a DIY magnet. I would prefer having the 2 powerheads. It's a better deal. Lol.

I have a 10 gallon only because a 20 long wouldnt fit through my doors. I don't see why it would be an issue

Cool. Thanks. I already have a 10 gallon nano that I'm wanting to move everything out of into the 55. That may be my best option?

Chromis look good I've got few(11) in my 75 mixed reef although they aren't the prettiest fish in all the sea I love how the swim in groups I have a lot of them because then no matter how much I spoil my other fish there is no food left over. I also love the neon blue mask they have on some parts of the face I feed mine mainly PE Mysis and high quality spirulina algae enhanced brine shrimp. When ever I walk up to the tank they (and the rest of the fish) swarm around me an beg for food. They're are great first editions to any tank because of how hardy they are.well good luck!
