Are 3 1400 koralia's and 1400 gph through the sump enough flow for a 150 I have 1 in the middle and one on each end? I had 2 950 gph cheap power heads, in the middle, but they don't stay on the glass well.

I would think you'll be ok on the flow.

I have 2 1400's and a return of about 1200 in my 125 and everything is good.

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

Thanks, I have a stock list of

1 naso tang
1 purple tang
1 coral beauty
1 blue tang
1 sand sifting goby(not sure of name, he has a yellow head)
4 chromis
2 ocellaris clowns

Is that about right for a 150 or can I have more, or is it too many?

coolest thermometer picture, this is a picture of my sea urchin riding on my turbo snail, and carrying the tank thermometer, of course you can't take a picture without the naso tang in it he thinks he is famous!

Awesome fish! I love the tangs. Looks like the urchin is trying to make sure you temp is accurate throughout the tank.

Next weekend was going for a couple more fish, right now I have
4 chromis
2 ocellaris clowns
1 naso tang
1 purple tang
Going to add a coral beauty
A small blue tang, and a sand sifting gobi
Do you think that's enough for a 150 or can I have more?

I think the tangs will be taking up too much space to add much at all. Maybe some perchers like blennies or another small fish....
