put a koralia 4 at one end pointing across your tank, it doesnt feel like much but it throws corals and fish around...

i have a 50gal with a koralia 4 its staggered a little bit from my outflow of my filter head (opposite ends of the tank of course) and its a little lower than it the filter head as well. it will do the job quite nicely. i agree with blue

plus they only use just a little energy. Hook one up to a battery back up incase of power failure, and your tank will be good for days. as long as its kept in the 70's temp wise.....and you keep your flow. :)
