The pumps are there just to move water around. They keep the debre off the bottom and other places, and for Reef Corals. I don't think you will have any issues with 2 powerheads instead of one.

That will create a more balanced flow in the tank, not all going in one direction. And with it hitting each other in the center, it won't be a stable flow all the time, it will be more random. Should be much better.

Sides of the tank, pointing upwardish. You want them to create a ripple across the top.
