Ok. 600 in circulation mode is fine. Just making sure you didn't go oversized with a 1200.

You may want more flow. Especially if you have corals. I would recommend skipping another maxijet and getting something with magnet mount. The suction cups eventually become a pain as they tend to not stick that well after a while. I use my maxijets as utility pumps now.

Yes. The 600 is the largest maxi you should put in your size tank. 900 is too much.

And I never experienced any humming with my mj's. Make sure you have the outer housing on all the way so there is no rattling.
