Wondering if this is too much flow

I have a 40 gallon mixed reef. Just bought a twin head 1600gph pump and have it on the back left side facing the center of the tank. Fish think its a typhoon lol, Most of the corals are doing good. Just wondering if anyone has a similar setup and do you like it.. Or us it too strong?

Thanks in Advance

I don't think that is too much flow. It is probably about right.

That puts you right at 40x turnover which 30-50 is reccomended so unless you see any noticeable dead spots then you should be fine.
