I understand what u r saying about the water going up the cord and back down and I thought the same thing but it did it. I will put it back in and see. It's a maxi jet 1200. What members of a clean up crew would eat the left over food?

Ahh the maxijet.... Those are mounted from the tank rim aren't they? That might be why the water is going down the cord, those aren't very adjustable. Do you have a way to hang it further down in the tank? maybe some suction cups or something the MJ came with?

I exclusively use Koralias cause of the adjustability, the magnet suction cup way it attaches to the tank wall and well, cause they have never failed me and are super powerheads for the price.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Came with a big magnet I can put it where ever I want. Had it bout halfway down the side. If I don't get it just roughy it blows the sand off some spots and I can see the glass bottom

I usually point my powerheads a bit upwards and towards the front glass. That way both flows collide and the flow is chaotic and will move things around like the leftover food.

Pointing it upwards can help keep your ph stable as well.

Thanks I will try that. Does the flow ever seem to bother your fish?
