Powerhead question

Do you think a 950 gph powerhead would be good enough for a 45 gallon tank? or should i get that and something else their are corals in the tank

That should be fine. But as a end result you will want to get something with alternating flow

I believe that when I had my 40 gallon my power head was 750 gph. As long as there is movement and your corals are swaying you r good. I'm currently have 3 power heads on timers to alternate flow, and I'm goin to get a scwd device for my return flow from my sump
