    Your question is as wide open as "I need a car, what should I buy?"
    Well, a Bugatti Veyron is nice.... a real engineering masterpiece. Oh, sorry, did not intend to humiliate your wallet, so its outside your budget....

    what about...
    Ferrari??? Mercedes??? Ford??? Tata, oh, is that within your price range.... OK, this way... that shop over there can help you...

    Let me describe what I am looking for:

    I bought a new tank, a 95x95x50cube.
    I will be focussing on soft coral.
    So I am looking for something that wont blast them away but that will create enough water movement to keep the debris in suspension

    how many sides are viewable?

    Where must the pumps be mounted? cubes are normally viewable from at least 2 sides, maybe even 3. When 3, you do not want pumps to sit in the front of the tank, in your view. And preferable not wires hanging down the front part of the tank.

    Then stronger pumps blowing over and past the corals would be better.

    Those pumps from TSR is a lot of bang for your buck. Really worthwhile to check out.

    Depending on placing, even Sunsun pumps could help a lot, and they are really cheap compared to other flow pumps. But yeah, not the best quality. Then Seio and Tunze pumps also fill their gaps. With Seio, they are more than SunSun, but at least got magnet mounts. Top end are Vortech pumps, although they are straight directional, can not angle them. For a lot of water movement you can also check out AquaMedic Oceanprop 15000L/h. But they are big boys but deliver the flow.
