|Concemi1||This is a little off topic, but what are the plants you have in that picture in your post? I like them and I might want to get them in my tank.|

|Tetrameck||Get a koralia 240. If it isn't engough, then get a second.|

I have the hydor 750 for my 55 gal with a Rena XP3 on the opposite side. It took some tweaking to get the flow direction correct because it is a little too powerful for my tank. All the long stem plants are almost horizontal and close to the surface of the substrate in places. Having the extra flow definitely helped, but I did not need as much as I have.

|kclone||I got a Koralia Evolution 750 for my 55gallon tank. I have it all the way on one side. I am also running an Eheim 2215 on the other. It might be too powerful, but I no longer have stuff accumulating on the bottom of my tank. Also, there was a skin on the surface of the water before adding the Koralia, but now it is gone.|

|TwoTacoCombo||I'd go with two Koralia 240s on opposing corners of the tank. I had a 425 on my 50g and the flow was too much for my liking (combined with my 2217 output). I added a 240 and another 2213 and things are just right.|

|DragnX||Opps without to mention that. I using a marineland 220 canister. The flow is ok about half the tank.|

Guess it depends on what you have for water movement via you current filtration. I run two cansters on my tank and a koralia evo 550 would be too much on my tank. If you are only runnng a single canister with low flow like an Eheim, it could work.
Edit: i notice you have a fluval. Which model? With your large plants, the additional circulation pump would be a good idea.

|DragnX||Some more input? And also would a Hydor Koralia Evolution 550 be too strong for the plants and fishes?|
