Yeah I think you would be happier with the two 550. I have a 36 bowfront and the 700 does fine.gets frustrating trying to get them set especially with corals to much flow not enough etc......that's deep lol

in my 37 bow front

I run 3 500gph heads

and 1 250 gph head

there positioned as follows :

top left side front length wise 500gph downwards slightly

top right side rear facing out 500gph downwards slightly

top center facing out 500gph straight out

bottom right behind rock length wise 250gph upwards slightly

I have absolutely no dead spots and seems everything strives with the flow

no complaints from live stock or corals or me for that matter

I would put it behind rock at the bottom facing slightly up lengthwise

I've got 4 Hydor 425's plus the two factory return pumps in my 28 nano. The two in the bottom corners run full time, aimed a little bit inward toward the bottom of the rock work so there's no dead spots within the caves. The two at mid-level alternate on 2 minute cycles for good indirect cross current on the SPS (aimed straight forward into the curved glass), and the two returns run full time (266gph rated each).... that gives me 1807gph (64x) movement. Secret is getting everything positioned correctly so that the corals low front, primarily 'shrooms, aren't getting blown away. Just takes some playing around.....
