You should be fine with 20x-25x turnover per hour. I am honestly not the biggest fan of ZooMed, so I would look at a nano-sized koralia, but it's your tank and your money, so it's up to you.

Any questions? Feel free to PM me.

I think if you go reef you may want more flow. I wouldnt worry too much about the clowns, mine are dealing with 2 1400's and a return of 1200gph in my 125g reef. LOL

180g Reef - 60g Rimless Reef -90G FOWLR- 125g Malawi Cichlids- 40b REEF- 34g Fresh Planted-working on- 20L FOWLR- working on
I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Thanks carey! I think I'll add a 240 gph koralia, so 1000 GPH will rock!
