    So, I'm about a day away from decided whether I'm going to upgrade to a 75g tank and I'm trying to figure out what I need for powerheads. I was thinking about getting two of either the Koralia Evo 750 or Evo 1050. I won't be running a sump so my only flow will be coming from the powerheads. Will two of those be enough for the tank, or should I go with more/different powerheads?
    THANKS!

    IMO just get 2 EVO 1050 (Recommended Aquarium Size (Marine): 45-70 Gallons) and since you are not running a sump that should be enough. I used 3 evo 425 and i have a maxijet 1200 with HYDOR rotating water deflector. Hydor rotating water deflector works like a champ it creates wave effect and rotates 360 degrees so no dead spot for me.

    2 1050's should be good. Maybe place a nano as well in the back of the middle to ensure no deadspots.

    I use three 1050s on my 90, so two on a 75 should be fine.

    I've got (4) K3's and a K(1) for behind the rocks plus my return pump from the fuge. It's a lot of current, but its keep things moving and the water well oxogenated.
