If you go with some Softies you may be surprised how fast they actually grow

Just Ordered a Koralia 750 and 1050 for now. I'll worry about getting the Vortechs later down the road. I just can't justify $300/powerhead right now.

Everyone who has them says they are but i'm not going to have anything that the Koralias won't suffice for for quite a while. Maybe i'll get lucky and find one used lol

I've only heard of this on a wavemaker. Coincidently I have two 750's on a wavemaker with no problem.

I don't have a wavemaker, when I Shut the powerheads off to feed the fish and corals, they go backwards or really slowly when I turn them on. I turn the power off and on a bunch to fix it. Wavemakers are just cutting power to a powerhead, so its the same thing.
