Powerhead Upgrade Questions/Advice Needed

My tank is a 60 gallon and I currently have two marineland powerheads, one 1200 and one 900. The powerheads are working fine but there are a couple aspects about them I don't care for so am looking to replace the two.

I'm leaning towards the Koralias, I've thought about the Tunze but there is a pretty good price difference between the two.

Main aspects I'm concerned about with getting a new powerhead are that is has a magnetic mount, low wattage usage, and rather compact.

If I was to get the Koralias would I need to get two of the 1050s or two of the 1400s?


If I was to go with the Tunze, I would need two of the 6045s for enough flow, right?

I've never seen either in person so no experience whatsoever. I'm also wondering if there is a big difference in size between those two when comparing models of similar GPHs.

I'd like to get whichever I decide on soon I just wanted to make sure I would have enough flow as I don't want to upgrade yet again.

Also, in case it makes much of a difference, my corals include softies and LPS, no intentions to keep SPS.

Thanks.

Still having a hard time deciding and advice would be very appreciated.

I want to make sure I'm happy with what I get so I won't have to worry about any more upgrades. Also, that I'll have enough flow. I'm just not sure if the Tunzes are worth the extra money over the Koralias.
