You said in your post you wanted good ones. They are the best you can buy in my opinion.

But if youre looking for good and a reasonable price then I would look at koralia powerheads.

I use koralia's on all my tanks, haven't had an issue yet.

They don't come with fancy wave makers unless you get the variable flow ones.

I've not had any noise issues but they can be a bit large in size depending on which ones you buy. I currently have the 425's, the 750's and 1400's.

These have magnetic mounts as well as the suction cup and are totally adjustable as far as direction. I like these cause they don't fall off and onto the sand, lol, hasn't happened once.

They r a good pump but if u put them up to the MP they can't compare I did run them be for and I never had an issue and I ran them for years but I did just make the switch to the mp10s and in no way will I ever go back

Also I have seen people use both at the same time the mp40 for a wave and the others for added flow to direct towards dead or low flow areas to so its just all comes down to r u willing to hand over 400 bucks one one mp40
