I have always heard that lower water flow rates were used in planted aquarium, but I do not know of any certain amount. For example, my heavily planted 55 gal tank is powered by a powerhead that circulates 800 gallons an hour. That seems high to me and was wondering what a more correct flow amount is since I need to get a new powerhead anyways. Thanks in advance.

I think what you may be referring to is surface agitation. when using co2 you want minimal surface agitation to prevent loss of co2.
