Return pump powerhead?

I'm in the process of setting up a dump for my 30 gallon reef tank. Simp is only 13 gallons but should help with removing som clutter from the display. Before the sump I was using a fluval 304 canister for most of my water flow(is rated for a 70 gallon tank). I have a 600gph return pump and was wondering if there is a way to redirect the flow from the return pump in a way that'll give my coral(mostly soft) the flow they need.
Any suggestions would be great

There are several companies that make products that will connect with pumps to direct flow. You could also simply do it with only pvc. I can't think of all the companies, but locline is the name of one I think. Check out bulkreefsupply, they'll have the stuff in stock.
