I've got the following circulation on my tanks:

20g- 1000gph an hour
29g cube- about 800gph an hour
90g- 3000gph and hour
125g- 5200gph if running all my PH's or about 3800 with the 2

Hope that helps

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

I always shoot for a minimum of 10x per hour. But not so extreme as to where it creates excessive evaporation in the tank
