I have a 24g AP and currently two 240gph pumps, but was wondering how much flow I need for a Soft coral? whats a good pump also.

I would start around 480gph which is 20x turnover in the DT. Then adjust if necessary. Eheim and Ocean Runner are good pumps.

what about powerheads? would they be good with a built in pump already?

The majority of people use powerheads to supplement the circulation in the tank. So when I say start at 480gph that would be the total from all sources of flow/circulation.
