Hydor Koralia 8 Watt, 1650 GPH Pump/Powerhead Information

Product Manuals & Documentation

1650GPH/ 8W Power Consumption

The new Hydor Koralia models guarantee unbelievable performance for probably the lowest power consumption of any pump on the market. Equipped with an electronic start up system, new technology rotors and propellers, compact in size, these new model will quickly become leaders in their flow categories (6.500-8.500-10.500-12.500 l/hr). The new built-in electronics ensures quiet operation during start up: which makes them great for use with wavemakers. It also shuts itself off if the impeller is jammed preventing damage. Hydor Koralia have a pleasant design and come with a powerful magnet-suction cup support that rotates to direct water flow easily. Koralias can be positioned safely glass, anywhere in the aquarium.

Note: This pump is suitable for use on aquariums from 0.50 inches to 0.80 inches thick.

Comments: I got a 3450 for my 150g. I think I should have got a smaller one. Well, actually I know I should have, lol. WOW! This thing moves water! My little clown Fish thinks he is on the EAC! They are extremely quiet. That is the very first thing my hubs said. As he really dislikes anything on my tank that is loud. They appear well built and solid. As others have said, it is a bit large. But, I would rather have a quiet sturdy piece of equipment at a reasonable price than some cheaper made product. I love it! I am going to buy two smaller ones. I will keep these too though.

Comments: I got this from Hydor (below), the it states the nano and evolution pumps are A/C, 1650 to 3250 (Magnum) are D/C. The Magnum pumps are sold as adjustable also, they are not completely flawless, large size, and inability to restart every couple days on a wave master pro wave maker. I had to put near surface facing glass about 2/3 up from bottom of a 31 inch deep 1/2 circle for counter current with 1500 Hydor pumps moving water left and right from back of tank favoring the bottom to middle. "The newer Koralia 1500 will have a stainless steel shaft in the center of the motor. The newest packaging will have new stickers "1500" on the outer box, some will still have 1400 but the sticker on the motor will have "1500gph" they are the same pump. There are 2 types of pumps in the market, 1) AC pumps: our Koralia Nano and Koralia Evolution are AC pumps 2) DC pumps: Our Magnum 1650-3250 are DC pumps DC current pumps will be quiet upon starting because they are directional comparing to the AC which is alternating current." AC pumps are lower wattages and quite while running 24/7 (no timer/wavemaker) Hydor USA, Inc. Customer Service 4740 Northgate Blvd #125 Sacramento, CA 95834

Frag Tank

Comments: I bought the 2250 model to address my water movement problems in my 75 gallon frag tank. It is piped in the system with the rest of my tanks but is the only one with Algae problems. The pump is big and I wouldn't use it in a display tank, but it does move the water. I have Koralia pumps my display tank with a controller and smaller Koralia pumps in my 2 refugiums and 2 29 gallon extra tanks. They all work great for me.

Comments: This pump moves a lot of water for the money. It is a large pump so may not be suitable for a display tank if you're trying to hide any equipment. I am using it in a 300 gallon Rubbermaid tub where looks don't matter. You could buy 6+ of these vs 1 mp60 so if money is an issue and you don't mind seeing a giant black softball in your tank this will be great for you. It sends water in a wide dispersion pattern so it covers a large area around it while still having the power to push for a good distance.

Comments: This is an excellent powerhead. Very quiet and easy to mount with its suction cup and magnet. Powerhead is very strong and it delivers as stated. I purchased 2 of these pumps for my 150g fowlr tank. I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for an affordable high quality powerhead.
