How much circulation in 90

Gallon reef with fish. I am thinking of buying two 450GPH circulating pumps for flow in the tank.
Should I do one big one or two smaller ones? How much flow should I have? (ballpark)

I have 2 750's, a skimmer that's supposed to be rated at 500gph and a canister that's rated at around 300gph
