What size powerhead for 30g tank?

At least 2 of the 440s if you want coral. 2 in the 600 range would be better. I run 2 of the 240s on a 10 and want more flow

I really like my Jebao wp10 which can be had for around $60. Very nice piece of equipment

Korella pumps are quiet, cheap and you can get them anywhere, i have 1 240 in my IM Nuvo 8, have 3 Of the same ones in my 15 gallon and a big 600 in my freshwater just for fun. You can also buy them used, look for a tank breakdown, get at least 2 of them minimum, you can never have too much flow!

I'd say two koralia 425's would be just perfect! One on each side. If you are looking to do high flow corals then I would say get the 550's but the 425's are exactly what i would get.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

I had the Koralia 600 and didn't get the kind of flow I thought I would and that was in a 20 long reef. Jebao may be more higher but you would be happier getting one of them than a Koralia. I have one WP-25 in a 75 gallon and the power from it is unbelievable. I can feel flow from i ton the other side of the tank. I tried that with the Koralia and only felt flow from about 6-8 inches away from it. You would only need one WP-10 in a 29 gallon. You get a great wave effect in you tank. Since buying it I will never buy anything else.
