Too much water movement?

I'm wondering if I have too much water movement for my planted tank. 75G with 2 Emporer 400's......low light 1.5w/gal and no CO2. Anubias and some other various low light stuff. Plants are thriving but with some GSA and at times flowers don't open. Lights are on for 8 hours per day. Just curious if this would make a difference. Thanks for yoour input.

Nope, imo. I once used 2 400s on a 55g.

You should be fine.

A single 800 GPH powerhead pointed directly at soemthing would cause some trouble for sure. that's getting into reef tank flow. But spreading it out throughout the tank will difuse the turbulance.
