I have a 125 gallon aquarium in which I am intending to keep all male peacocks and some smaller haps. I bought several power heads based on flow recommendations for reef tanks... so now I have one koralia 1600 and one koralia 1200 running with 2 fx6 filters. This is a lot of flow, is it too much for the fish I am keeping?

You should be fine, I have an fx5, fx6, and Rena xp3 along with 2 powerheads on my 125. The fish doesn't seem bother at all.

You can always throw the powerheads on a separate strip, or if you wanna get a little more involved with it, separate timers. That way you can just use them as needed when you have waste piles. I'd wager though, that some of those fish love the current and will play in it.
