I would probably put 4 Koralia Evo 1400's in there, or look into the Vortech MP40..

Koralia makes good powerheads. You want 30 to 50 times movement for volume. So 150 gallons would need 4500-7500 gph movement. I have a 90 gallon tank with 2 koralia 750's, 2 bio wheel 280 filters, and a skimmer that moves 650. So I'm moving right about 2700 which is the lower end. Dang...I guess I should add another 500 to it. Lol

Thumbs up on the Koralia Evo 1400's and the EcoTech Vortech MP40. I've got a 120 with the MP40. I'll most likely add an MP10 or two on the back of the tank for more flow. But, I won't lie, the MP40s will leave a dent in your wallet.
