I just bought two of them. Haven't set my tank up yet but at first glance they are a bulky power head. Not very sleek.

They are supposed to be the best value for your buck. They do a lot of what a Vortech can do for less then half the price.

How big of a tank. I have a 150 that's 1/2 thick glass. One of my hydors won't even stay on the glass. The magnet is my main concern

I have a 75. I don't need both but Imma use one as a wave maker and the other to get the dead spots. The magnets hold strong on my tank as well.

I have a wp25 and was testing it on my 55g cichlid tank. These powerheads are very very powerful so I doubt you will need more than 1 wp40 for a 90g tank. If you want to see exactly how powerful I made a video showing the different modes of my wp25.

Wp25 modes - YouTube

The 90s are a 4ft long tank as well so I assume the wp40 would have a bit more power in how much movement it gives the entire tank.

Ok so I can use one on top on wave setting and the other a little lower as a power head
