I'm going with a mag drive for my return and koralias for my flow. I plan on using four power heads but I'm sure you'll need ones like the magnums. Uber water flow.

Here ya go

They are a tad hard to come by I've noticed.

Hydor Koralia Pumps | Power Heads | PetSolutions

I'm going with the koralia 1400's instead of the more expensive magnum thats rated just above it. About $20 cheaper on each one.

You might try amazon too for the magnums.
