Depends on corals your looking to grow. Softies, LPS, SPS? Each have different preferances and requirements.

As for brand id recommend Hydor Koralia's

I'd go with two 1200 gph put them on the sides aimed at the front center so the flow crash this gives a nice random flow 2400 sounds like a lot but it really isn't I have 7000 gph in my 180 and it dont look like enough What you want is no dead spots
