    You can't go wrong with MAXI-Jets... they are at the top of the list for PH sales... JBJ powerheads are nice... you can't beat the dual output... but I've read they can not handle being on a wavemaster(turning on and off). HTH

    On a wavemaker system...maxi jets
    Running constant...JBJ's

    The only thing two reef keepers will agree on, is what the third reef keeper is doing wrong!

    I agree and a question how much flow would you need in a 90gal how many maxi 1200's? It woudl be a reef with fish.
    stephen. I would be using a pump for a return and a closed loop system as well.

    Stay far far away from the powersweeps. They are huge, the suction cups suck, the ouput is terrible, and in my case it stopped rotating in one week. I have read since that most others have not had better luck with those powerheads.

    Now, I use Maxijets.

    I have 4 Hagen pro series power heads in my tank, 2 Pro 4s and 2 Pro 3s, and they have worked flawlessly for me since day one .. and I have never even cleaned them ... BAD BOBBY ... I also have a aqua clear 800 and it also has been trouble free. So for myself ... I have no Issues with Hagan power heads.
