What size Koralia for 26g

Looking at the different size Koralia powerheads, not sure what size I would need. Does anyone have experience with these? And know what size would be good for a 26g bowfront?

I use a K-2 on my 65g and it moves lots of water. So I would more then likley go with a K-2 and a K-1. one on each side of the tank.

I would actually go with the Koralia Nano and a #1, a #2 may be to much flow for your 26G IMO...

i have a 26 g jbj. so you guys recommend at least 2 power heads (probably 2 koralia nanos) for an aquarium this size?

I'd definitely go with bigger than nanos. I have 2 K1s on a 20G and am actually thinking of upping one to a K2.

I would go with a K1 or a K2. Just be careful how/where you aim the K2. I had a nano that would turn on at night in my 29BC. I moved the nano to my frag/QT tank and it barely makes my Duncan sway.

I have nano right now, instead of having K2, I think it's better to have 2 koralia nanos. My tank is also 28gallon and I use the filter waterflow and the nano...
