the 400 is 0nly 106 GPH. I would add at least 600 which is 160 GPH.

Than one maxi jet 600 would be work or you could do (2) 400's in opposite corners as another option!

I have a Maxi-jet 600 in one corner of my 20 long and a Maxi-jet 900 in the other corner. There is a pic of the tank in my gallery...I think...

Shoot I would add a pair of maxijet 1200's. One in each back corner blowing toward the middle so they ripple the water aswell.

1200's in a 20 long could create quite a current, especially 2. Keep that in mind if you plan on any low to moderate flow inverts. Also, even with my 600 and 900 pointed at the surface the sand is always pushed around.
