How much flow?

So, i'm upgrading my 29g to a 55g. I currently am using two koralia 750's. Will that cut it in the 55g? I'll have a hob 30-60 filter (for now) and a remora skimmer also flowing.

many thanks

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

That is perfect for the 55. I had 2 k3's in mine and it was too much.

I don't want any limitations on my coral keeping ability. I want them all or at least i want to be able to house them all.
Always better safe than sorry.

Thanks

yeah if I'd have known then i would have gotten the bigger ones. I just hate to waste the ones I have, I mean, 750 is kinda good isnt it? can I add one to the back or something?

youre in the same boat as me. the way i think is if i want to put soemthing in my tank i don't want to be restricted, which is why i placed two korallia 550s in my 26 gallon and why i want to put a DIY cree led fixture or 4 T5 HOs so i can be able to house SPS corals if i so pleased

So if i decide to add should I go with another 750 or a different one? And what type of trajectory should i aim for?

Thanks guys!
