That really depends on the animals and plants you have in there.

General rule is 10 times the volume. In your case you want at least 750gph. More flow usually helps combat some algae types.

I just bought another XP-3 for my 75 gallon, so now I have 2 at opposite ends of the tank . With just one, the plants on one side of the tank were collecting debris.... Causing algae.
