Hey x or Greg, I know it's a little off topic but what are your opinions on a good brand of power heads. I have hydors in my tank now on a wave maker system and one just went out

I use hydors. Most of mine are the magnums. I have one that starts backwards every now and then. Love the magnetic mounts and they are inexpensive.

I would get a new koralia and get rid of the wavemaker unit. All they do is wear out your pumps prematurely. I also use Aqueon power heads, which I like very much, except for the fact that they use only a suction cup and no magnet. You would have to re-seat them on the glass every 6 months or so.
I also bought a Jebao wp40, which is not a bad unit so far. Pretty potent and a good magnet.

I've been looking into the Eco tech power heads with the motors outside the tank... Any thought on those?

I know this was aimed at Mr_X, but I like to chime in. I like them, less chance of shock but a bit pricey for my tastes.

Garrett706,

Did you say you were seeing purple and white spots on your glass?
