Powerheads for a 29g reef

Would 2 500gph pumps be good flow for a 29 reef?

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Glad it is helping. I cycled in 14 days, but I used Start Smart bacteria in a bottle. Don't know if that helped, but am sure it didn't hurt.

WOW I hope mine goes that quick. It's day 7 and I've got 4 ppm ammonia and just got some trates and trites. I'm dosing with pure ammonia
