if you have more flow, it keeps the tank from having dead spots, which will lead to detritus build up and algae growth. so yes, if you have more flow in the tank, you would have a cleaner tank. for a 75gal tank, you can go anywhere from 15x to ~40x of turn over ratio depending on what your setup is.
