Outside the reverse flow issue (which hydor fixed for free, free of charge) they have performed flawlessly from day 1. They have a smooth wider flow. If i wasnt going with the Jebao wp40, id be picking up bigger koralias. Heck if the jebao doesnt hold up, ill be buying koralias again. I cant speak good enough about hydor and their powerheads. Ill def be buying more koralias down the road.

depends on what you are planning on keeping. (coral-wise if any). if you are planning a fowlr tank (no coral) 10-15x turnover would work. (360-540 gph) 20-30x for softies (720-1,080gph) 40-50x for sps (1,440-1,800 gph) those numbers will vary from person to person, but its a good start. I personally, considering mines a 125, those numbers would be insanely higher.

I personally do, but only because its a bigger tank. If it was a smaller tank ( under prob 40g) i wouldnt. The risk of releasing toxins would be too great.

If it bothers you too much, just do quarter sections at a time. Or even one pane of glass. That way you can get it cleaned without the stress of possibly hurting anything

Looking back, i widh that i had gone with the 1050's instead of the 750's but thats my error. At this point, i would def buy koralias in the future if the need arises. Only thing i dont like is that they arent variable speed. They can be plugged into wavemakers, however their intensity cant be varied.
