Which size koralia?

I am looking at getting 2 koralia power heads for my mixed reef 40b and was wondering what size everyone would suggest.

I was looking at the koralia evolution of either the 600s or the 850s

I was also planning on eventually adding in a wave controller to make the flow a little more dynamic. Would it be better to stick with my 2 original or add in extra power heads to make up for them not being on all the time?

If your set on the wave look at the WP40 or the WP25 Id lean toward the wp25 in a 40 gl. tank

Wow, first I've heard of those power heads and they are impressive.

I have one on my 180 and waiting in another and a wp25 to put in there. The 25 is plenty and you'll have to run it at half speed probably. The new controllers have 3 speed settings and 3 wave settings.

The wp-25 would be good on full blast for a 75. The 40 would be to much IMO.
