Power heads

Hey guys I'm setting up a new tank and it's gonna be a fowlr and it's a 65 gallon it's only 3 feet in length and I got a sump on it so the question is what should I do with power heads 1 or 2 and what size 750 or 1050 hope to hear from you guys

I agree on the koralia 750's, they should be good enough. You can also consider the 1050's but that's up to you.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

2 1050 make it sound like there would be tons of water movement lol what you guys think would be good for a 80 gallon 4 footer i got the fx5 running on it and one 750 in there at the moment but that's only cause it's still cycling any ideas about a good power head set up for that( it's a reef tank) and could someone explain the whole wave maker thing ? Thanks lol

i wouldn't use a canister filter on a reef tank. you are removing that after the cycle?
what corals do you intend to keep in the reef tank?

I want to eventually get it running on a sump also y is it bad to run a reef on a fx5? Also what if I had the fx5 and made a refugum (sorry but I just can't think of the right spelling atm) for it

well, it's just that it will be a source of nitrates if you don't clean it out regularly (like weekly).
