But I do know that the type of powerhead doesnt matter so much as complete circulation.
For that size I would look into a maxi-jet
I agree with bigred but I just wanted to correct this. The type of powerhead is actually quit important for a reef tank. Maxi jets put out linear flow in one direction, this can work if you angle enough of them properly to create random flow but they're not very good for the type of flow we want. Koralias are much better because they put out more general flow and tend to create more randomized currents. Corals like random turbulent flow vs. linear flow. The Jaebos and vortech pm series IMO
are the best with tunze phs coming in a close second. These powerheads are controllable and allow you to create different currents for the best randomized flow.
