Always trying to be thrifty, what powerheads are you using inside of your bio cube 29 or similar size tank?

I have a K5 power head and a maxijet1200 return, and it's just a little bit too much. I'm getting corals blown around, and large-grain sand / small rocks moved.

Thank you for your input and recommendations!

I'm using the larger of the two Sicce Voyager Nano (I think mine is the 2000) and it is too much also. I like it, but it is 1 speed and too much. They do have a 1000 version. Worth a look.

I'm running the stock return pump with an Innovative Marine spinstream, and a Jaebo PP-4 powerhead (< $50). I like it; I keep it on random mode @ ~75 power.

Mj1200 as return pump and a wp-10. Honestly its almost probably too much. I have to run the wp-10 on the lowest setting.

Tagging along.

Looking at replacing a Nano240 with a PP4 in a 12g NanoCube.

When I had a biocube I ran a sicce syncra 2.0 return, and 2 mp10's on about 60% reefcrest mode. Not exactly cheap, but great products.

Before that it was the stock return and 3 hydor korralia nanos. Still plenty of flow, but added quite a bit of heat to the tank.
