Well I just simplified it, I ordered a wp40. Should be here Monday or tuesday I'm guessing.

Gonna run it in the 125g and see how it does. As for placement , I was thinking to put it on the opposite side of the return which is at about 1500gph, that sound about right? I'm just going to run the single wp40 in there so I wanna make sure I hook it up in the best place. LOL I've never really worked with a single power head before other than the vortech.

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

Mine is setup the same way. You'll like it it's in my 125 halfway down. Make sure to point it straight to avoid vibration.

Cool. Thanks! So, the one in your 125g is good? no need for another powerhead?

I haven't found the need for another. But since reliability is the only question mark and since they r so new to the market, and because of the price I ordered a 2nd one as well!

With your return you may be ok with one . In my 180 I use 2 and am getting ready to place an order for a wp-25 to add along with them .

I was looking at the 25's too, there was a guy on ebay selling a 40 and a 10 together but it was almost as much as two 40's. lol

The powerhead got shipped and its only coming from Arizona so it should be here tuesday or wednesday because of the holiday. i always get excited when a new piece of fish gear comes, it makes my week. lol

I was thinking 2 25's as well, but a 25 was only 5 bucks cheaper than the 40. So i opted for the 40

The 40's can be controlled by their native controller or by means of an ac/dc universal laptop converter. That's what I have you adjust the dc voltage to the unit thereby varying its speed. Hey Carey be sure to setup a vid when you can I'm excited for you!

Aww Thanks! I'm due to be releasing a new video soon anyway. I love taking photos and video of my tanks. lol Plus I have some newer fish in the 125g so it'd be nice to have them saved onto video. hehe
