If you are asking about powerheads then a couple maxijet 1200's would do the trick.

I use a RIO3100 (900gph) for an return pump. Its pushing about 700-750 GPH after the Incline of head feet. And Its used In my 29G. IMO I think the flow can be Increased, Its not too much for the fish nor the flow of the tank.
