600g?? Yeah, I think i could make room for that in the house. Just would have to get rid of every other tank I have, but that would be worth it.
lol

I'm curious of the dimensions of that monster. Looks to be more of a square build with a lot of depth.

I've for two wp40's and they are doing the same as when I put them in. Nothing has broken, no noise so i still pleased with them. Now, if I happen to find a good deal on ebay for some mp40's or a mp60 then I will of course go with those. Bur for the money you cant really beat the jerbao's.

Just to pester you one moe time on the jebao powerheads for my 150, I was looking at them on amazon and the wp-60's were only $2.00 more than the wp-40's would that be way to much flow or would I be able to keep them dialed back enough to keep my sand in place

Hmm that doesnt seem like a big dollar difference BUT keep in mind if you get the larger one and tone it down then you are still using more electricity than if you get the wp40.
I don't have the wp40's even at full blast in the 180g, they are about half way up.
In this case the extra $2 might be a waste in my opinion.

Thanks Carey, it sounds like in this case bigger isn't always better, so I guess now it's time to burn that tax return on fish supplies

Do you run them on else mode or any of the other settings or do you just have a constant flow

Yeah don't buy the WP60's. the 40's are more than sufficient and plus the 60's are way too big.

I've pretty much decided on the wp-40's but I'm just a little confused by the the wide pricing gaps on amazon when I look up the 40's, I've found them running from $70 up to @ $150

It depends on the seller with amazon. Some places are high just looking for someone to buy it at the inflated prices. Usually amazon itself is the cheapest.
