Just my opinion, but I wouldn't buy those powerheads. They attach by a suction cup only and ask anyone whose ever had one fall will tell you what a disaster it was.

Spend the $32 each and buy koralia evo 750's. They are great pumps and you won't regret it!

Ya, thanks. I wouldn't trust suction cups alone. Disaster waiting to happen.

Well, it could fall on a fish or a coral and it would still be running so it could do some damage to either. Plus you have to come home and then go fishing for the silly thing. Probably mound of sand and might even burn the pump out depending on how it falls.

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

Gah! You guys are freaking me out. I wanted to get Koralia's but the LFS was out. So I settled for Maxi-Jet's since they were also recommended by Stocking List Sticky here.

Even when putting them up I can tell the way they connected to the suction cups is crappy. I hope they don't crash while I'm away...any ideas on how I can improve them? Super glue?

maybe run the cord tight against the back of the tank and put a piece of duck tape on the cord so that if it falls it just hangs by the cord? i've never done that but its a thought lol

not a bad idea...now I'm just freaked because I won't be back until 3/2! Haha I have my roommate checking on it as much as possible. Luckily its just cycling so no fish or coral.

I'll have to check it out when i get back. I just ordered the Koralia's online though :p

I believe there are magnets that are pre-coated to be aquarium safe that you can glue to the maxijet and then have the other on the outside, or use the maxijet for an ATO or reactor pump and get on Amazon and buy the koralias anyway. Nothing wrong with upgrading.

I just upgraded from the koralias to Vortech MP10's.

It's cheap insurance. Even if it doesnt fall directly on fish / coral - if it points downward, your sandbed is toast and all your rocks and corals will be covered in sand.

I will admit I'm not one to buy on the cheap, but for a nice SW tank, $65 for new PH's shouldn't even make you flinch!

Good luck whatever you do!
