I've got two 6045's that are way too powerful for my 40b... I'm actually selling them to get something smaller.

Well, mine isn't adjustable, but that is way overkill for a 29. Get some koralias (or I guess probably A koralia). You're in on the group buy, check out BRS on Tuesday afternoon. How much did you pay for the Tunze? they're like $90 new. The smaller Koralias are more like $25 or so.

Yea just order them from dr foster smith man. Put a 480 or 2x240s of korlias + your reef test kit and salt water test kit on your order and the shipping would be free.

Yeah I actually forgot about that. Gonna check BRS and how about a Koralia 240 or 425? I payed $106.42.

The koralia nano 240 and 425 were on YouTube but I am not sure which one is better. They were both in biocubes. The koralia nano 425 is 425gph, the nanostream 6045 is 396gph. So I am confused as to why the 6045 would be overkill if it is less than the koralia.

Look at it this way. You spent $100+ on a powerhead that is capable of pushing out 1200gph. It uses 7w. The 240 uses 3.5w. You also won't be 'restricting' it any. The other thing is that the Tunze I have are a little noisy unless I put a rubber piece between the mount and the glass. I just think it makes a lot more sense to use that $75 towards something more useful than having a powerhead that is capable of pushing 1200gph in a 29g tank.
