a maxi-jet most def would work, however i personally cant stand the looks of them inside a tank. the koralia evos are alot sleeker,

Yeah they are pretty ugly, just gonna go with a koralia because it looks nicer and you can change the flow direction.

Why don't you skip the entire setup and sell the two corals you don't like?
