Confused maxi jet 1200

Is it a power head or a pump? I ordered it to replace the bio cube pump after researching and reading what others were doing as far as upgrades. But as I read it sounds like a power head. Did I order the wrong thing? It said maxi jet 1200 off the The site inTank.

It's both lol. My friend told me to get it for a reactor and I thought it was only a power head too but then he showed me he was using it as a pump.

Ok cool I'm replacing the pump in the bio cube with this one. Nano reef and a bunch of other nano forums and site recommend it as one of many upgrades.

The maxijet is a powerhead, but it moves enough water that is could be used as a pump for a nano tank. One of the major issues I've had with that particular pump over the years is cheap impellars that seem to come apart all the time, so keep an eye on it.
