Since u both have the same tank, I think you could refer to this post

I started out with a 72g bow. I had dual 660gph Tunze Nano Stream (6025) running on the tank as well as about 900gph on my return. It really depends on what kind of tank you are shooting for. A FOWLR or FO will not need the amount of flow a Reef will.

Thanks for the info and replys.So now I got all my equiment this is what I have.72 bow front tank,Stand,water pump,200 watt heater,lights,glass top,filter.Does this sound good if so can I start buying my rock,sand,water?

I would add another heater to the mix. Having 2 will keep one from working overtime and you will have a back up in case one fails. The glass tops are not needed in SW tanks as they will cause low pH from lack of O2 exchange.

What kind of lighting and what kind of filter do you have? Also refresh my memory, are you going FO, FOWLR or Reef?
