For what it's worth, I swapped out the stock pump in my JBJ 6G with a MaxiJet 900...and kinda wish I'd gone with the 1200. But, still much more flow than stock. D'you know what's in there already?

Hmmm...well, from what I'm reading, the MJ is only 295. I was able to judge the difference in mine by the rate my Hydor rotator moves now...MUCHO faster than on the stock pump. Wish I had a more scientifically-accurate answer for you.

I think I may go w/ the maxijet 1200 then, thanks unless someone has a better suggestion
