Water Flow

I have fully cycled 30 gallon sw aquarium (fowlr). I currently have 2 aquaclear 50 powerheads moving the water around. Is this too much for an aquarium that is 30 gallon. My two clownfish don't seem to mind, but I don't know if it is too much flow or current....Thanks.

I have a friend that has a Vortec pump on his 30g with a Mag5 return pump so no you don't have too much flow.

It should not be too much. Are the two clowns the only things in there?

Yes. I currently have 2 clowns, 10 turbo snails, and 5 astrea snails. Next week I will probably add a small yellow tail blue damsel. I would also like to add a yellow tang in the future....Thanks

A yellow tang requires larger confines, at least a 75g.

I agree with James that yellow tangs need more room. They need plenty of space.
