I have a 90g and I have 2 koralia 1400gph powerheads, 1 koralia 1050gph powerhead and also 4 return nozzles you wont need as much.

Depending if u have return nozzles, id say grab 2 koralia 1050's and you should be good

I have a 75 Gallon and started (about a year ago) with three Koralia 1050GPM pumps. I have changed two of them to 1400GPM's and still have one 1050 in the tank - also have a sump with a 9.5 mag drive. I am happy with the flow.

It depends on what your keeping SPS need a good strong random flow mushrooms like a low flow Fish enough to keep the detritus from settling The rule of thumb is 20-50x volume I run just under 10k gph in my 180 it's mostly SPS some LPS

This may help http://www.peteducation.com/article....+2167&aid=2662
