Hello all,

I just replaced my powerheads in my 50 gallon FOWLR with 2 Koralia powerheads. I got one 1150 and one 850. Do you think this is good flow for a 50 gallon tank?

That's more than enough. People normally have 20-30x gph than their tank. So a 50 gallon you are looking at 1000-1500. You have 40x which is 2000gph. You have a fowlr tank too so flow isn't as important as a reef tank. As long as the flow is picking up the poop off the sand and you have no dead spots you're good.
