    I put a WP-25 in my 90 gallon about 2 month's ago and it works great. Other than return pump flow, that is all I have in the tank now. Took the other powerheads out and so far things are great. I am not even running at highest setting either.

    I dont see why you would need anything bigger than a WP 10. If money is no issue the RW series would be the way to go. JMO

    The WP-10 is a good choice. I have two WP-25s in a 5 foot 100G and they can move sand at the far ends so probably way too much for a 25G even turned down low. That plus they are pretty big physically and would look pretty ugly in such a small tank..

    Well im mostly going for bare bottom... coz these pumps can easily blow the sand and i dont want that... well i guess ill go for rw4 since it has speed settings and liked the shape too... not much difference between rw4 and wp10

    I have a pair of WP40 in my 66 gallon tank. the ONLY reason I have them is because they came from my 180. I never could run them wide open on the 180. they were too strong. I run them at a 30% max with a 3 second alternating pulse (controlled by my Archon and APC). I have them on the back wall pointed frontward. I dont want a wave action just good circulation and they do a heck of a good job of that. I could realisticaly go with a pair of 25 or 10's and be able to run them higher but heck. i had these. I am setting up a 25 gallon Solana now and bought a WP10 for it. it is PLENTY for that tank. FWIW, my tank is barebottom and they sweep the nasties to a single corner.
