With SPS and other stuff like that in there, you want to go 20 IMO.
In the DC Metro Area? Check out GWAPA and WAMAS

Yes, 10 times or greater would be suggested. I can be difficult to get higher then that with just your main pump so the easiest way to do this is with power heads inside the tank. They also make it easy to direct the flow in areas you want (around those SPS that require high flow).
