The 75P is pretty easy to get sufficient flow in, as it's not terribly long. I put a koralia 1 in my tank when my xp3 started to slow down and it mowed everything down. Even the koralia nano is a it too much. If you go with two eheims you won't need ANY powerheads, ever.

Remember, I've had a 75P for almost 2 years now
Hmm, I am on my way of setting a 75g tank and I considered adding a coralia to my setup. Somebody reccomended me coralia 2, while you are saying that even coralia 1 is too much? I will have combo eheim 2213 and 2217 in my tank. Do you think it is going to be enough flow and that I don't need a powerhead?
