new koralia pump from F&S ?
Anyone try this from Fosters and Smith? I'm looking to replace my very noisy maxi mod 1200 and seio 1100 in my 90 sps reef. I was looking to get 2 or three of the model 4. That puts out 1200 gph each. I was just curious to find out if anyone tried them.

I have a couple Koralia 3's in my 40 breeder and they've been going great so far. Practically silent compared to the Seio's they replaced.

I have 2 #4s in my 150, so far so good

Here is a vid of it working.

I've got a #1 and it's nearly silent... I certainly don't hear it over my Magdrive7(jackhammering away...)

Do these Koralias come with magnet mounts? Just curious. I am looking to get a couple as well.

I have two of the 4s and so far they are doing quite well. I have them on a wave maker, timed with 2 hours on, 2 hours off with a 1/2 hour overlap to each cycle. then from midnight to 6 am I have them on an alternating 3 hour cycle with one hour of calm. Why, I don't know, I guess I got lazy programming the neptune:D

So far I have no complaints. But I've only been running them for about a month.

I was only able to buy 1 so far. I got a 4. It works nice. Its a wider flow then the seios though. I will be replacing the rest of my powerheads when more of the 4s are in stock. I like them. Its nice they come with magnets. No more sand storms.

they do seem nice but i'm hesitant because of the disappointment in the hydor wave maker attachment that i tried in the past...same company.
