If you don't mind me asking, why? That's almost 900 gph of power head flow, 12 times turn over just with the power heads. What kind of filter do you have on the tank?

You should have plenty of filtration and water movement with just that set up, though I'd get the biowheel for the Magnum. The powerheads won't do anything but move the water around a lot and Mbuna's have no need for water movement on the order of 24 times tank volume an hour. You're getting up into SPS territory with that kind of flow.
