Positive aspects of the product (pros): Strong, even flow
Cons: A little unsightly

 
A great pump for water circulation. Moves a good amount of water, and moves it over a wide area, instead of the normal powerhead stream that shoots out in a straight line. The magnetic suction cups work great, and it can be positioned to point in almost any direction aside from straight up or down.

The only downside, and it is not a big one, is that it has lots of white text on it, which detracts from the look of the tank.

Positive aspects of the product (pros): Provides nice circulation
Cons: Sporadically decides to shut off, unsightly

 
The fish love the current that this powerhead makes. However it is quite large and does not add to the "natural" look of the tank.

I have found that it decides to shut off and not work for a while, then turn back on when it feels like it.

Positive aspects of the product (pros): Strong, gentle flow, quiet
Cons: none

 
We have 4 of these in our 75 gallon reef along with a K1 and 2 koralia evo 750's. They provided powerful, yet gentle flow that simulate ocean currents and our SPS really love it and have great polyp extension and growth

Positive aspects of the product (pros): good water flow
Cons: none really

 
I have a 3 and a 4 in a 55 gallon tank that I'm using for salt water storage. They really do work well. I like how they are connected tot he mounts allowing for easly directional adjustment. I think I like the 4 a little better in a 4 foot tank for a SW tank.

If you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.
