I would def recommend powerheads, its not only for the coral but for your live rock too. The more water circulation you have the less likely you will have dead spots where things accumulate like uneaten food and other things.

You get flow from the sump return and/or filters as well but nothing like you'd get from a powerhead

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

yeah since you are diving into sw you mineaswell get used to powerheads.. theres rarely a way around them. ive seen people go a few days without them but they are a necessity in the long run.

Okay, will get powerheads. Are there any that are under 50 dollars or possibly 30? I'm on a spending limit here...
