Vortech mp40's

Would 2 vortech mp 40's be enough flow for a 275 gallon sps dominate tank ?

My opinion would be no. You want massive flow for sps. I would look at the mp60's. Also with a tank that big you would probably want supplemental flow as well as the primary pumps.

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

It does not seem to be too much. It seems to be not enough.

I have 2 MP40's in my 55 reef, to help put things in perspective.
