Powerhead for a 29g??

I ran a search and couldn't find anything...I have my cart open on Big Al's so I hope I get some quick feedback

I'm looking at this powerhead
Koralia Evolution - 1400 - Powerheads - Powerheads at BigalsOnline

I this ok for a 29g or too much? I'm not sure how to determind how much flow yet. Sorry

Got the 750, way too much flow. But it did stir up a lot of crap that's now filtered out. I'll have on to the 750 just in case I can use it in my 150g build.

If you decide to get another one the Koralia nano 425 might be a good one. I believe it might replace the Koralia 1 which is what I'd use in a 29g.

Nice! I love those Koralia powerheads. I have a nano in 2 of my planted tanks and a couple 1s in my reef. If only they were a bit cheaper....

Actually I've looked at those and the only thing I can afford is the foam guard.

Haha, I want one so bad. Can't justify the 175 though even for the small one. I don't think the fish i put in my 12 would appreciate it either
