The good and the bad

I bought two of these little pumps for a 12" cube reef looking very nice after I upgraded the Aqua Sun 12 3 watt fixture. I do like the way this little pump will rotate around on the output axis can even control the flow. The magnet system holds strong no danger of it falling of from the magnet strength very powerful and flows very nice. Here is the bad the only way the pump mounts to those crazy strong suction cups with those magnets is you have to push about a 22 caliber plastic bb down into a very tight hole on the back of the suction cup. The pump then hangs with a 65 to 70 per angle. The worst of it is for all that was put into the engendering and design of this super little pump the just placed a very weakly attached red plastic gusset that holds very loose to the pump so much so that if it is moved or touched much it simply falls to the bottom of the tank. For all that was done so right this was done so wrong, I also suggest that hydro places a concentric twisted pattern of three 1/4 inch pipes so that current will be sent out in all directions. They should pay attention to this I am thinking well right now. I lost my other one as they are so small, thankfully I have the Koralia nano 240, which I think is to large for the 12" cube frag tank I built. I will be adding a new hydro pico if I don't find my other one and working on building the 1/4 inch three concentric water jets. Build this please they have more product development money than me now, however when a hillbilly has an idea we will find a way. The Koralia 240 does not create to much flow for the tank but it just sticks out to far. It will be joking another one in my 24" cube I am building. I placed a 420 gph pump behind my rock work and using half inch PVC created 5 jets that go out in different directions to avoid dead zones in the back of the tank.

Great Size, loose bracket

The Hydor Pico Evo-Mag Circulation Pump is great little pump to move water in tight spaces. It's small and has an adjustable flow rate by turning the intake grate. The downside is the plastic bracket that clips onto the pump barely stays attached and the little cord keeper on the bracket is useless. I ended up tucking the motor in a corner without the bracket or suction cup/magnet.

One good one bad

Had these before. Great little powerheads for a nano tank. One of them is running fine, but the other one has a bent shaft and it rattles on the cage. Other than that they are fully adjustable flow wise and have a 180* rotator on the pump side. The fastener keeps popping off so I had to modify with a silicone rubber band. Glass suction cups now have a magnet for positive attachment so that is a good thing

Great little pumps

Perfect for adding some extra flow in tight spaces. Completely hidden (except for the cord) and adjustable in aim and flow.

Great little pump!

This is a great little pump! It is quiet, powerful, and the flow is adjustable. I purchased this and a hydor deflector to add a bit more flow to my seahorse tank. I would definitely recommend this pump. I love it. =)

Fluval Edge

I got this Powerhead for my Fluval edge and it works perfectly. I may need to purchase another one for the opposite side of the tank but it is perfect for such a small aquarium and doesn't kick around sand.

very nice

Very nice powerhead. Pushes a lot of water and puts off very little heat into the aquarium. Only downfall is its very hard to control what angle the powerhead sits at. Would be nice if it rotated like the 180 version.

Good bang for the buck

I have this pump as a replacement for the stock circulation pump in my JBJ NC12. At less than half the wattage of a maxijet and half the size you cant go wrong.

Very good pump

This is a very small and aesthetically pleasing pump. I have one in my 2.5g SPS pico and I like it very much. The only complaint is the bracket for mounting the magnets is a little weak. Other than that I have had no problems.
