Power Heads

I am in the process of setting up a 125 gallon half cylinder reef tank. I am on-line looking at powerheads and wanted to purchase two for this tank. can someone please let me know what flow rate to buy. My choices are 620, 820, 1100, 1500, 2600 gallon/hr. Thank you

The 2600's are huge and i mean huge so i personally would not get one. I have owned the 620,820 and 1500. The 1500 are a little big but not to bad and they push alot of flow.

So out of the choices i would go 1500. Also if you get a 1100 or above you can stick them on a Seio controller on day if you wanted too.

Thank you. I have an Aqua Logic controller that I plan to use with 2 of them. Do you really think 1500 is necessary? I was thinking that one was pretty large as well. Thanks
