I use koralias and love them, never had a problem with em and they are reasonably priced. I was using 2 750's in my 29g tank so I'd say go with the 550's or the 750's.

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

I for sure would go with 2 of them. You may find the 425's a bit weak, I have 2 in my 20g and it doesnt move alot of water. I also have one in my 29g cube and am not thrilled with it there. Always better to get a little extra flow than not enough in my opinion.

I agree on the Koralia's. I am using 2 of the evolution 750's on my 55 gallon FOWLR. They work great. If you have not purchased try Amazon or Ebay I paid around $30 shipped right to my door.
