No it won't bother the clown, he might like some movement. I would put them towards the bottom, on either side, angled up to meet in the middle. In front of your rocks. But this is something you will have to experiment with, to find the optimal positioning for your tank and rockscape.
Best of luck, Flowerhorn.

With 61 times turnover your corals will mind especially if they are being blasted. Most softies and some lps dont handle high direct flow very well. I suggest keeping the 425 koralia and getting another either a 550 or 750. No one can tell you how to position. The science of position is to eliminate as many dead spots as possible so experiment.

How is it 61 times turnover? The 1200 pushes about 265 gph, not 1200!! That's just the model number.....

Zack, you need to check your specs, it wouldn't be 61 times turnover. A 1200 is not 1200gph, it's like 270gph...
