I dont think youd be happy with a single mp10. I have one running on my 60g and its ok, I dont utilize all the bells and whistles though. I prefer the koralias to be honest. Not sure how thick the glass is on your 125g either, the mp10 might not stick to thick glass like that. I am currently running a single wp40 jebao on my 180g and getting another one in 2 weeks. Thats another option and it comes with a controller. About $90 unless you can find a group buy for them.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Much better price! So, are you saying all I would need is one jebao for the 125g? To replace the 3 PH's I have now?

I need to better understand where to place the PH's

I had adequate flow with the wp40 as the only powerhead, but I tend to like ALOT of flow. I cutrrently have the wo40 in my new 180g I just setup and am going to run two in there.
Based on what i saw with the wp in my 125g I would get two. The wp20 is a little less cash but its about half as strong as the 40 I believe. But keep in mind both would be totally adjustable, maybe not as precise as the vortech but you can dial it down and it has different settings for different types of flow, then you adjust the intensity.

Found a set of two on eBay for $160 and bought it a few hours ago!

So I'll place them side by side and try to adjust the controllers to the same "wavelength?"

I will have mine on opposite sides of the tank, I dont make the waves or anything though lol. I just use them for the great water movement. I will probably start messing with it one day soon I bet, just to see what it can do.
