Well, I bought two koralia 600s and I have to say I'm a little disappointed. They don't seem to do a whole lot of anything. I'm going to keep trying different locations for them, but at this point I think I should've just got the mp10. Even pointed right at my torch from 18 inches away it's not really moving.

I have 6 koralia power heads I'm not using...I could have 2 mp10's if I went with them to begin with. They're awesome. Even my 1 is great...

This makes a wp25 and 2 koralias and when I got the wp25 they were still $75. Next stop mp10 I'm done messing with the flow in this tank. Live and learn.

I was reading about a person that put a wp25 in their 29g tank and they were having issues with it being too powerful as well. Their solution was to put a voltage regulator on it which they bought for $12 and it powered down the pump to be just about perfect for their tank. It might be worth looking in to. I can go find the link for it if you're interested.

Amazon.com: Universal AC Adapter 15V 16V 18V 18.5V 19V 19.5V 20V 22V 24V 70W: Computers & Accessories

The wp25 draws 8v - 20v. The guy that talked about using this ran it at 15v and it was perfect for his 29 biocube
