In just trying to help get rid of fish poop on the ground. Should I point the pumps down? So what I'm guessing is get another one?

Agreed... BUT, you can find Koralia's for short money, like $55 for a 1400, so you can still get away with 3 for less than half an MP40. Not saying anything bad about the MP40 Con, I want one myself! But if you find the right spot the Koralia's are the best powerheads for the money...

Haha I hear ya and I agree also. Just saying if it were me

I like the sleek look and more room in the tank. Remember I had it both ways and like more room in the tank.

One day you'll get it

I know dude the MP40's are sick. Once my 75 is up and running I may invest in 1... Or 2 !

So do you place at the top of the tank? Or near the bottom? Like where would be ideal?

I have mine about halfway down. You want to have some surface agitation but also flow on the bottom so poop and old food doesn't settle and can be filtered better...

How does it sound to get a smaller powered one for the other end surfaced more at sand level for poop and stuff?

I have 2 Koralia Evo 1400's at opposite ends about halfway down. They're on a Hydor wave maker so they alternate running for 7 min intervals. There are so many diff ways of running them, you need to just play around with them to see what works in your tank. You need to make sure the water flows around your rocks and keeps debris suspended in the water column. If you have one facing down you will end up with a bare spot on the bottom of the tank...
