    2-3 MJ 1200's should do it.

    i am from a differnt opinion i think than you guys but i think more flow is better and you can't have TOO much flow, just think of the ocean. I have a 36g tank with 2 MJ 1200's and 2 600's plus my skimmer etc... Just my two cents but i think more is definately better than less...

    Once your rock is in the tank, place the powerheads where they'd give the best flow around the rocks.
