Powerhead?

So I'm 2months in starting my 20g aquarium. I want to do corals and I know I need flow for my tank. Any recommendations for a cheap powerhead? I was thinking about a maxi-jet 400, but I'm not sure if that's enough power.

I'd go with 2 hydor koralia 565gph power heads if your looking for cheap but effective
these should give you decent circulation

if your wanting corals what type of light do you have , corals require good lighting

Do you think 1 of those would be good? I feel like having 2 will look like they're taking up all the top of the tank and there won't be anything to hide them.

I plan on getting 165w MarsAqua or something like that. Just need to figure out a way to hang them up.
