Powerheads

I have a marineland penguin 350 and a marineland penguin 150 in my 30 gallon do i need a power head as well? I bought a zoomed one that was only 160gph and it kind of sucked. Any suggestion of how much Gph or if i even need one?

Sounds like you ought to be fine. None of those coral need tons of flow.
