circulation question...

I currently have a 75g FOWLR, in the near future i plan on getting some LPS corals. I have 2 koralia 1050's positioned to move water AROUND the rock in a circular pattern.
Once i have the corals, should i change the position of the pumps? Should they be facing directly at the rock(coral)?
Does anyone have any advice on circ pump placement?
My research on corals mentions water movement... are they refering to movement in the entire tank or more so that a coral with a moderate to high requirement should place more in the direct path of the current?

Best bet is to put on back part of each side (or front of side) and aim toward front or back glass. angle so they intersect at that point on the front glass. Hope this helps.

so when a corals recommended for a moderate to high flow, are they referring to the power of the power heads or their placement in the current?
