I just ordered a # 3 -

Do ya'll think it's enough for a 50 gallon? Maybe two is better - but at these prices, it's not a money issue at all........

They are AC. Can't be run on wake makers that shut on and off, but will work on the SEIO controllers which only adjust speed.

Some folks said they're pretty big, but I'm interested to hear some reviews.

You can read a thread about them here (http://reefcentral.com/forums/showthread.php?s=&threadid=983152)

I just recieved this email:


Hello,

The Koralia should hit US retail in February 2007.

The first to have it will be Drs. Foster & Smith.

The Koralia will work great on any controlled that will just slow the impeller down and speed it up. The Koralia is not recommended for stop/start wavemakers.

Sincerely,

Hydor USA, Inc.



They didn't say why, but I'm assuming it has something to do with premature wear on the pumps.

does the ball joint have a set screw, or is it just a friction joint? I'm a little ticked I just bought 2 seio's a few months ago.

are there any other controllers/wavemakers out there like the SEIO, that slow the impeller down and speed it up, also work with these new pumps?

i own a seio 620 and im using it for now but it is a horrible pump compared to my nanostreams. i love my nanostreams but these hydors are nice looking i guess are they not made of Lexan like a nano stream no does that really matter maybee. I know the seio is a large pump not a nice thing to look at with a very akward mounting system.

Lexan must have cost atleast $200 an once :D :D:lol: cuz tunze is outrageously expensive

Just got a reply back from Hydor. They state they have not tested it with othe manufactures equipment. But, seing the Wavemaster Pro has a soft start up it could go hand in hand. My Aqua Clear powerheads made noise when used with my Wavemaster Pro.
