powerhead question

I'm upgrading to a 125 gal reef tank...wondering if i would be OK with 1 Seio 2600 ph or should I go with 2 1100 ph's?

Thanks for your input!

I dont own Seio powerheads but I would add two. This way you can create more different flows in your tank.

I agree, at least two, maybe three for a good chaotic current.

I have two in a 55G, three might be ideal, depending on what corals and their flow needs are....

I have a 125 and dont use any PH`s. The two returns in my tank give me all the current I need.
