Powerhead or no powerhead. tis the question
Local guy on craigslist has a mini jet 404 and a maxi jet 1200 for sale.
Think he was asking $20 each, but I wouldn't pay that much for them.
If I can get them at the right price, are they decent, plus do you think my tank would benefit from one at low power?
I know most of my fish enjoy swimming in the current while i'm filling the tank after a pwc. Only the gourami doesn't. With the eventually stocking goal would everyone be happy will a little water current

a lot of people with freshwater tanks do not use powerheads. I don't have any in my tanks. Some fish, like your danios, certainly enjoy currents, but few fish really require them (there are some exceptions like hillstream loaches). Personally I wouldn't bother with them... the money would be better spent elsewhere.300 gallon mega tank: sailfin pleco, clown loaches, silver dollars, roseline sharks, congo tetras, new world cichlids
125 gallon office tank: Africian cichlids, synodontis catfih
75 gallon community tank: bolivian rams, black skirt tetras, dwarf neon rainbowfish, corys, harlequin rasboras, otos, bristlenose and bulldog plecos, assassin snails, various shrimp
60 gallon goldfish tank: fancy goldfish

+1 - I get current in my tank with a small airstone that sits in one corner - $5 plus $2 for airline tubing and a cheap air pump. Most of my fish enjoy the bubbles - some stay away.

Would the used Maxi jet 1200 be similar to this one, brand new, for $19.99?

Like new and new = almost the same.
In theory, theory and reality are equivalent.
