I need to replace a powerhead. Thoughts on something cheap? Thinking about a Korallia 1650.

I really want a clam, but I don't have room right now

Tried to address the skimmer issue again with Coralvue. Was really hoping for a different answer this time around, but told the skimmer is too big for the system again.
Little to no foam production

I was hoping for a better explaination, tbh, but not much I can do about it. I left the skimmer running in vinegar solution before I left for work and plugged the old seaclone skimmer in.

Rp, you'll have to get in line there are a handful of people that want some of this macro. Just not enough of it to go around.

So, Did more maintenance to the tank. Cleaned out as much algae as I could. Then siphoned the sump...one more chamber to go...maybe should pull the whole thing down and clean it to continue address algae issue.
I have a reefs2go order coming as I needed pods. I also added several blue leg hermits as they were BOGO, like the pods. And along with that, I added a Lord of the Rings polyp. I've never really liked zoas, but I really liked it when I saw it. Here's hoping it does well!
Skimmer situation still dire, reef octopus is out and the little sea clone hasn't broke in yet...

Things continue as planned. Pods and blue legged hermits came in yesterday along with the Lord of the Rings zoa I couldn't pass up. Zoa hasn't opened up yet. I'm gathering up enough water for a massive water change. Going to be doing this via the sump, which I am going to take down and totally clean out to remove the remaining detrius I haven't been able to siphon out.

Also, I love clams. So, I just had to link this.

Oh, and I'm trying to come up with a plan to address my low flow. In a tank with 5 power heads that used to run great, it has settled down to so little, especially in the corners. I actually have some cyano showing up in the one. I've even pointed power heads down at the sandbed to help and it hasn't done anything.

Hank seeing that you like the clams so much I recommend if you ever make it out my way you stop at the Academy of Sciences in SF. Massive clams (18" +) with brilliant colors. Next time I'm there I will try to snap some pics.
