powerhead suggestions?

in the market for a powerhead....

this is for a 90 planted tank... im looking for something which has a variable speed and direction.

im considering the Hydor Koralia Evolution 750 or the Eheim Aquaball Powerhead 1212.....

unless someone can recommend something better...

If you're just wanting to push some water around then anything will do. Im not personally a big fan of the koralia stuff (even though I have/use them) because they're so large of an eyesore, but they do give good movement.

Maxijets are a bit smaller and will accomplish the same thing too, so it's really just a matter of what you want to spend.
