Too Much Power?

I have two Koralia 4 at opposite ends in the back pointing towards the middle at the same height near the top in a 125 gallon. It is forming about a one inch tornado time funnel in the middle of my tank. Is this too much flow?

you can never have to much flow in a aquarium.

Just bring them down a little so that they don't cause the tornado , you want more of a ripple effect on the surface .IMO

It depends on the types of coral you have. I have 4 K-4's and 1 K-2 in my 125, but I have mostly SPS corals which love high flow.
