Marineland Penguin 350

Do you think a Marineland Penguin 350 hang on filter is too much for a 10 gallon saltwater tank? It will be a reef tank. The filter is rated at 350gph and I will not have any other powerhead in the tank. I like the design of this filter..... Is it too much?

If it were me I'd go smaller and add a powerhead. For corals you want some sort of horizontal water movement, you don't want all the water coming down on them like a waterfall. Think of the ocean...water comes in from the side, not normally from on top.
