I have a Koralia 3 in my 40 Breeder. It is advertised at 850 gph, but it is a gentle flow because the pattern is so wide. It is large in the thank but not too unsightly IMO. I think it would work well in a 36 bow.

I agree Koralia are no where close to the output of a Tunze nano stream. I suggest a Tunze Nano 6045 for that size tank if you intend to go into SPS.
