it depends on the corals you want. Lots of lps and you won't need as much as sps. Or maybe a mixed reef and you'll just have work out the flow. What is the return volume on your tank? I'd go with another 1400, to equalize flow, and point the 750 back at your return outlets. You might need a little more rock too imo.

I have found the best way to cycle your tank! Want to know how? Pee in it. Build thread: http://www.aquariumadvice.com/forums...-141081-3.html Scientific Reading: Reefkeeping
