Powerhead for 55 gallon mixed reef

Was wondering if one jebao wp25 would work on my 55 gallon mixed reef? Or if I should get two and have them alternate power like every 4 hrs or so...so basically one runs for 4 hrs and then the other runs for 4 hrs?

One would probably be enough. I put a wp40 in my 60 and it's on the lowest power level.

Probably powerheads. Maybe you'll prefer two smaller powerheads on each sides ?

Already have 2 jbj 1600s on a wavemaker and just don't like them...even have 2 425 koralias that run constantly but just not motion I'm looking for the corals. All the corals are fine and grow great but just been searching the jebao and from what I've seen I love the way everything moves. Just more curious if the switching of flow from different sides has any benefits or if the one jebao wp25 will be fine. From what I've seen one would be plenty just curious

I got my jebao wp25 today and now wondering what I should run it on? I had it in for a hr on else mode and s3 but seemed strong...should I leave it in else mode for a day or so to see how corals react?

Mix reef. I have to hide my frogspawn though because it wasn't liking the flow. My anemone is on the side of the tank where there's a big rock that's prevent the high flow and im thankful it didn't move anymore. It a pain in the *** if it moves. If I reposition my powerheads I need to make sure my wp25 faces up pointing towards the side, 750 facing wp25 but not directly so my zoas and palys are not hit and clam won't move.
