IMO Maxijets are the best PH out there. They have a solid construction with great alternitives as far as attaching it to the tank. The flow rates are very good and they are extremly easy to clean.

Does MaxiJet make one that is 500-700 GPH? All the ones I see are smaller than that. If so what is the model?

I belive maxijet max's out at the maxijet 1200 that pushes 295GPH. If you need something that pushe's that much water then I would classify it more as a water 'pump' vs a powerhead.

RIO offers both water pumps and powerheads. For a good quality water PUMP look at the mag drive product line.

I have been using Hagen Aqua Clears with no trouble. Like many others I learned the hard way about Rio's. Sorry they are just plain garbage.

Hmmm dont know if i should say anything in this post I have always used RIO's and have had great sucess. About the stainless steel shaft i know its not that its a titanium shaft. Although I have heard great things on Mag-drives except they a little loud. I know a guy that has had one for 3 years and its still going strong.
