I used to use koralias, I had a 425 and a 240 which was great for lps and softies. They are also well priced.

You have 62 times per hour turnover in the tank. That is a ton even for sps. I would highly consider less flow as you will probably rip the flesh off corals with that powerhead.

I'd get two. One on each end but maybe do a 240 on the other side, unless you have a hob filter which will provide some flow too.
