Also they tend to move the sand and are pushing the corals should I just use them to run quickly over the sand bed then reset them so my corals are not getting to much flow

What do you mean pushed? Do you mean the current blows the flesh a bit or does it move the entire coral, base and all?

Try aiming the two power heads at each other. This should make a fairly random current all over the place.
