    Maxijet for their reliability and on-off capability. I also like the Rio Seio powerheads for moving large amounts of water and low power consumption- 6watts and 620 gph. My seio's have been running without problems.

    Raven I have one of these also...I like it for its large volume and gentle currents. Doesnt make your polyps close up and your fish swim for their lives.
    This is the one that I couldnt rember the name of. ;D

    Good thread.

    I like the Tunze due to the controllers as well, but also because it is not a hard jet of water coming out. It is a nice diffused flow. I have two in my 58 gallon tank (at about 500 gph) and it is not overkill , by any stretch...everybody in my tank has great flow but is not being blown over! LOL ;D

    The Seio pumps also have a nice gentle flow and you can dial down the flow as well.

    Where is the Hydor Koralia option? I think these offer the greatest flexibility in terms of the direction of water movement. Also, I believe they look the best as well.
