Question Red sea max ...powerheads

I have a Red Sea Max 34g...it has 2 powerheads which I can point to any direction I wanted.
But I don't know if I should point to the surface, or down... or one up one donw!!!
I have a fish (2 clown fishes) and start with some corals (righ now I have zoo's only)
and looks like the clown fish swimming better with the powerheads up, but I don't know if that won't be good for the corals?
What is the best scenario for a fish/reef tank?

IMO I would point one of them slightly up to cause some good surface aggitation.. This is how we get good aeration for our tanks. The other just place where you can get some good chaotic flow.


You can view many of my fish and corals in my photo albums in my profile.
