My Review of Aqueon Powerheads

I'm currently running a half dozen tanks with powerheads and have always used Koralia's. For my latest 90g build I decided I would give the aqueons a shot.

I purchased 2 950's and placed them about 3 days ago. Since then one has stopped working one makes a loud clicking sound and it has fallen off the glass twice. They are comparbale in size to the koralia as well.

I am not very happy with them at all, and the flow i do get doesnt seem as much as the Koralias. I already pulled one and luckily I happen to have 2 Koralia 1400's which I will use, too much flow for 90g but it's all I have.

The aqueons I will use for water mixing if they can hold up for that task lol

Anyone have similar issues or is it just me?

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

Sorry that they don't work well . I really like my Koralias, they seem to be good quality. I have a Marineland powerhead and it always falls off, but the Koralia always stays on. Thanks for sharing this with us, now we won't use our money for a not-so-good product, lol.
Please don't forget about the toxins in some corals (like zoas and palythoas)
