    You'd be looking for 20-30x turnover for the tank, so something like 920-1380 gph minimum, and I'd say you'd want to break it up between 2-3 powerheads possibly on some sort of wavemaker

    They make a 1040 I believe which is 1040 gph, you could start with one of those on each side of the tank and see where that gets you
