    maxijets if you are going to run them in sequence..( stop and start constantly )

    JBJ's are amazing if they are on all the time.. i've had mine for months now.. simply amazing power.. 3x 550gph powerhead..
    dual output.. so you get different currents.
    but i heard people say they will quit if you run them in sequence.. they were not meant for that.

    moving.. so temporarily out of SW :b8:
    planning next tank, possibly 60x30x20 on 2x plasma.

    I've never seen JBJ powerheads before actually 55o gph would be nice

    Right now i've got a line on 3 brand new mj 1200's for 15$ each US i would certainly buy them b/c thats a sweet deal !
