Water movement!

I have two maxi jets 1200 in a 55gal. I want to get one of those rotating things to put on the powerhead and get a koralia water pump. I was wondering what flow rate to get, any ideas?

Moved to hardware/equipment forum:

I would get two Hydor Koralia 2 for a 55 gal if looking for a replacement for your Maxi-Jet 1200 pumps.

The Hydor FLO Rotating Deflector isn't compatible with the koralia pumps though but is with the Maxi-Jet 1200.

The Hydor FLO gives you a jet of water that winds thru the water. While the Koralia gives you an even wide flow. Like tecwzrd said get 2 Koralias.

I love my Hydors. You can glean the whole thing without taking it out of the water.
