    Well I received 2 of these new Koralia Evo 1400's today. And felt like sharing some initial thoughts.

    Hydor has created a powerhead that will arguably will be hard to top considering all things: Price, Style, Size, Controllability, and POWER.

    Clearly big improvement from their older brothers the original koralias.

    These pair of 1400's pack a powerful punch in my 90. I spent hours positioning them in my tank cause they'd blow the substrate wild if they werent positioned just right.

    Size is absolutely a plus and where on of a few motivations in getting em.
    The old K's are just too bulky. The new K's still have some size but are significantly smaller.

    I do have the hooked up to my APEX AC with some wavemaker programs to each of em so they are synced nicely. No noise or chatter on start up. The only sound I hear is my energybar clicking the outlet off.

    Here are some pics unboxed and pics of size comparison to the old K4's.

    Yeah those are sure nice. I have the older models and I must agree they are pretty bulky when it comes to placing them somewhere in the tank.

    I think I'm going to get 2 1050's along with an MP40 sometime when I have the cash.

    Last I checked, The Hydor Evos already have the snail gaurd built in where as to not have the flow directed in one spot like the prior model? Maybe tattted can verify. I run the Hydor Evo 700 in my 46g now. works like a charm.

    Those are really nice...and I cant believe how much smaller!

    I am mad now because just about 2 weeks ago I bought the Koralia 4's for my 135 tank and now seeing these I want to switch.

    I wonder if I can return!
