New 75 gal

Here's my new 75 gal. The tank has been running a couple months now, and the water has leveled off. Tested, and have no ammonia nitrate, or nitrites.

A few pieces of live rock intermingled with some other rocks that came with the tank.

My question is water flow. Right now I'm using a Tom Rapids RPS wet/dry canister, and have a 600 gal PH on the right and just added a 1500 gal ph on the left pointing up.

My concern is, do I have too much water flow? Should I replace the 1500 ph with another 600 and add a 400 to the center of the tank? Since my fish are small I noticed they have issues when entering the stream of the 1500 pump.

Thanks

As far as I can tell, the filter is awesome. Has a built in skimmer. It's been running for a week. Once I got it adjusted correct I'm enjoying it. Filter is rated to 175 gal. What I like most, and my deciding factor was the overflow box will stop if there is a power outage. No flooding the room. In Florida this is important since we lose power everyday in summer.

You loose power everyday? We do maybe once or twice a month.. You can't possibly be getting that much rain?
