I don't think it will hurt. What are you thinking of using one for? I have one Koralia 750 in my 75 gallon African Cichlid tank to try and help with any dead spots.

just some current in the tank. I have 350 bio wheel. and a fluval 406. but I will be taking off the 350 because its noisey. and to fill in that spot I wanna put a power head in.

I think using a power head will be just fine. Just watch your fish and make sure it's not bothering them that's all. My fish swim right into the current.

That's a good price. I like the koralias because of the magnet and suction cup. There quite too.
