Circulation pumps?

Upgrading to a 75 gal reef tank. Was going to purchase 2 magnetic wave makers for circulation. My options are 1300gph or 800gph each. Any suggestions?

I remember reading that u want like 10x your tank in water movement. I would go with 1 1300 and 1 800.

You want a lot more than 10x water movement in sw. Aim for 30x including your filter.
