My 6025 with modifications to pump out 1250 gph and uses 7W:

Compared to a Koralia 4:

A closer look at my 6045 modified to pump out nearly 1500 gph and uses only 8W, it has a larger propeller. Also notice it has the original nozzle length. The two pumps above had their nozzles cut back to provide wider flow pattern:

Here is one posted by RC member bergzy, a Koralia 4 is also in the background, this nano is mounted on the top brace, just to show how flexible they are:

I used a 6055 prop which is a little bigger than the 6025/6045 prop. I was lucky to be one of the first to get a 6055, the 6055 props will probably be ready for order in June/July.

And last but not the least from member pico1's tank:

The nano at the center is mounted on his seaswir wavemaker so it rotates left and right to provide alternating flow.

I was going to put up another pic of mine, now you mentioned your 120g sps tank, definitely consider two 6055s with a controller. The 6055s can be easily modded to pump out 1900gph/20W each, and you will need at least that much in a 120g sps tank but probably more. By June/July 6055 supply should catch up so it is perfect for your situation.

Below is a pic of my 6055 modded with a 6200 Stream pump prop to push out up to 2900 gph and draws up to 35W:

The stock nano flow is of course wider than an MJ powerhead, but some thinks still too narrow which is why the nozzle was cut back to widen the flow.

I have two 6025's. Here's the surface agitation I get in my tank.

I have 2 6025's running in my 60 gallon tank right now. They are amazing, best powerheads I've ever owned. I haven't done any of the mods to them that I have read about on reefcentral, I don't really feel I need the extra flow, for now. For your 125 though, you might wanna consider it if you're gonna go with 6025's.
The flow as compared to the Maxijet is totally different. It is pretty widely dispersed, I think. It pushes much more water than the Maxijet, yet it doesn't seem to be as direct and forceful. I hope that made sense.
I had a total of 7 powerheads running previously in my tank, 2 Rios, 3 Minijets and 2 Maxijets. All of them were replaced by the 2 6025's. I left one Rio in behind the reef, along the backwall for flow there, but that's it.
They are definitely worth the wait and the money!!! Good luck with whatever you choose!!
